Nintendo's success attributed to Switch, Super Mario Odyssey

NEW YORK NY- JULY 11 A man enters Nintendo's flagship store

After being delayed in 2017, Nintendo has announced that the online subscription service for the Nintendo Switch will be launched this September.

Revenue was also boosted by the sale of more than 47 million games for the console, as well as consistent sales for its 3DS handheld console. Some of these games would include Dr. Mario, Super Mario Bros.

These figures are courtesy of the Japanese giant's latest financial report for the year ending 31st December 2017.

What we're getting at here is that Nintendo is doing quite well.

Today, during Nintendo's corporate strategy meeting, CEO Tatsumi Kimishima gave a few updates about the performance of the Switch and the manufacturer's plans for the console and the rest of its lineup.

YouTube Go expands to 130 countries and adds a High Quality option
In the race of becoming the best TV streaming platform, YouTube TV now joins PlayStation Vue , Hulu TV, DirecTV and some others . However, as many may already know, YouTube already has its own app available on the Google Play Store and Apple's App Store.

The Switch follows the relative failure of the Wii U, which sold only 13 million consoles between its 2012 launch and 2016-almost 90 million less than its predecessor, the Wii.

Brainseed Factory's charming and rather imaginative puzzle-platformer Typoman is making its way onto Nintendo Switch in the form of its later-released Revised edition. The first game to arrive with this support is Splatoon 2. However, Nintendo has stated that they may change the titles they initially offer and expand the collection.

As shown, from February onward we will be releasing a wide variety of new software titles one after the next.

Xbox and PlayStation established their paid online services years ago. The company recently announced that the hybrid console has surpassed the Nintendo Wii's lifetime hardware sales less than a year since its release. "This game helps to maximize the number of people who have access to Nintendo [intellectual properties] by providing a Mario game that a wide variety of users around the world can enjoy", Kimishima said. Nintendo also said these games will have added online functionality, but what that means exactly remains unclear.
