No surprise here, but the Switch will be sold at a profit from day one. We don’t know what kind of profit so don’t try to argue that they’re making $75+ per system and are price gouging consumers.
Nintendo put out an updated release schedule, which can be seen in the images below.

Pokemon, Mario Kart 7, Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS and Kirby all line up the million sellers list in the last 9 months ending on December 31st.

I’ll just sum it up, Nintendo made $569 million in profit last quarter.
The Animal Crossing mobile game was delayed until next fiscal year, which just means after April. Pokémon GO reaches $1 billion in worldwide revenue, and is the fastest mobile game to do that. Super Mario Run was downloaded over 78 million times. Wii U production has ended in Japan, which is no surprise and not really worth discussing anymore.
