Nintendo UK has sent out a press release stating that they’ve returned to operating profit, but they’ve cut their Wii U sales forecast. Nintendo today reported financial results for the first nine months of its current fiscal year (through Dec. 31, 2012), and revised full-year financial and unit shipment forecasts. While Nintendo saw year-on-year increases in the sales of Nintendo 3DS hardware (up 11 percent YOY) and software (up 41 percent YOY), those gains were not enough to offset decreased sales of Wii and Nintendo DS hardware and software. Furthermore, the strength of the yen averaged against the euro in the first nine months of Nintendo’s fiscal year contributed to an overall 2.4 percent year-on-year decrease in sales. On the other hand, the company has returned to profitability in ordinary income and net income levels, driven primarily by foreign currency exchange gains. It has now cut its Wii U sales predictions from 5.5million to 4million.
