Nintendo Profit Outlook Weakens Ahead of Wii U Launch

October 24, 2012

Nintendo Co Ltd trimmed its annual profit outlook Wednesday by almost one-half as a strong yen and diminished console sales weighed on earnings while it readies the launch of the successor to the hit Wii console, which it hopes will reboot earnings growth.

For the year to March 31, the creator of Super Mario lowered its operating profit forecast to 20 billion yen ($251 million)from a 35 billion yen forecast in July. That compares with a consensus estimate by 21 analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S of a 27 billion yen profit.
