Next up for Nintendo is the job of keeping Switch's momentum going through 2018.
When Nintendo announced the Switch in 2016, the firm claimed to have "reinvented gaming" with a console that also doubled as a tablet.
"The smartphone business is yet to become a profit pillar for Nintendo", Mr Kimishima said. In addition, of course, there's an impending core Pokémon game, that should see sales of the system skyrocket even more.
Nintendo also shared that the sales of their Nintendo 3DS console are also doing great, with them saying under the finance section of their official site that they've shipped a mind boggling 71.99 million units since launch. Counting third-party releases, eight Switch games have become million-sellers, a benchmark for hit status.
