Nintendo's Holiday Sales and Profit Set to be "Best in Years"
We're in the middle of the most crucial shopping season of the year, in which Nintendo and its competitors aim to achieve significant sales. From Nintendo's perspective it's been targeting a recovery for Wii U with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and amiibo, in particular, with the former being a hugely popular franchise and amiibo representing the company's first move into the toys-to-life craze started by Skylanders. According to market analysts — whose job it is to assess a company's business and prospects — Nintendo could be on course for its best Holiday season for a number of years.
As reported by Bloomberg, a number of analysts have been raising their profit estimates for Nintendo since late September, with the latest to pitch in expecting Nintendo to comfortably exceed its profit target for the financial year. While the 3DS is enjoying strong sales of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the Wii U's improving fortunes are largely attributed to Smash Bros and amiibo, as stated above, in addition to the impact of May release Mario Kart 8.
Awesome for nintend, I'm hoping to actually get me a wii u soon and them benefit by getting mario kart 8.

Nintendo is leaving Xbox in the dust. Imagine hearing that 4 years ago.
