Nintendo are dabbling with numbers today as the House of Mario adjusted forecast figures due to weak 3DS sales.
Despite growing 3DS sales, the results have not met the internal expectations so far and together with the weakening Yen, has revealed a loss of 27.9 billion yen / £219m - a smaller loss compared to the same period last year, however.
This time last year Nintendo had reported a loss of 70.2 billion Yen.
The new 3DS XL hardware has performed well in both Japan and overseas, growing month on month, but have still fallen short of what Nintendo were hoping. However, with the console providing profit with each unit sold now, things have started to improve for the Japanese game-maker despite losses.
22 Million 3DS consoles and a staggering 64.45 million 3DS games have been sold so far.
At the beginning of April Nintendo projected a 20 Billion Yen profit forecast, however this has dropped by a significant 70% in the company's revised projection of just 6 Billion Yen.
