Nintendo is closing an interesting fiscal year, with some lows, but especially highs that allow the company to set new records.

We are approaching the end of this fiscal year, and you know well what that means: figures, figures and still figures. And today, these are the accounts of Nintendo which are scanned, carefully analyzed by Oscar Lemaire, the journalist specializing in figures in the video game sector.

Yesterday he revealed one of his usual threads on Twitter reviewing the annual report of the Japanese firm for the fiscal year 2020-2021.

The year of all records?

And there is plenty to do in the Nintendo Account this year. Indeed, the firm recorded a record profit of 3.6 billion euros for the fiscal year 2020-2021. A big number for a big company, you might say, nothing too surprising. Well even for Nintendo, 3.6 billion is a lot, really a lot.

This represents an 86% increase over last year’s profit, and, most importantly, a 72% increase over fiscal 2008-2009, which so far held Nintendo’s previous profit record.

On the Nintendo Switch sales side, there’s nothing to be ashamed of either. In fact, no less than 28.83 million Switches were purchased during this year. A flourishing year, therefore, which can only bode well for the future of the company.
