Nintendo has reported that both its profit and revenue entered decline during the nine months between April and December.
The corporation posted a net profit nonetheless, of about £59.5 million ($99 million), though this was down thirty per cent on its performance from the year prior.
Total revenue was down too, but only by 8 per cent, thanks to a strong Nintendo 3DS campaign offsetting disappointing Wii U figures. Nintendo made about £2.9 billion ($4.8 bn) during the same nine-month period.
Nintendo sold 2.4 million Wii Us globally during that period, another year-on-year decline compared the year prior when it shifted about 3 million units.
Software sales fared better. The company sold around 16 million games for the nine months, compared to 11.6 million during the same period last year.
To date Wii U has sold 5.86 million units worldwide and Nintendo 3DS 42.74 million units.
On Wii U, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, Wii Party U and Super Mario 3D World have now each sold more than one million copies.
In mid-January, the corporation warned investors that it will miss its annual Wii U sales targets by 6 million units.
