Nintendo lays out six-title plan for Switch

Nintendo Switch's Sales to Customers Are Over 13 Million Units; SNES Classic at 4 Million Units

Nintendo, as per a latest report, is planning to cross 20 Million sales number for its console of Switch in the upcoming financial year (that will conclude in March 2019).

While the Switch is successful, Kimishima-san has pledged to continue supporting the 3DS leveraging the portable console's large installed base and rich software lineup. And "Super Mario Odyssey" has sold almost 10 million copies already. In just what way, we are bound to learn in the coming months as we get closer to the release of the service.

The announcement was made the same day that Nintendo held its earnings briefing in which the company revealed other good news for the Nintendo Switch.

China accuses USA of 'Cold War mentality' over nuclear policy
The 74-page report, the Pentagon's first since 2010, cast China as "a major challenge to U.S. interests in Asia". The defence ministry spokesman said China's nuclear arsenal was the minimum needed for national security.

"Odyssey" in particular topped the charts, with 9.07 million units sold, while "Zelda" reached 6.7 million copies. While definitely not unprecedented in the industry, this is a massive leap for Nintendo especially with Switch sales continuing to skyrocket. The first game to arrive with this support is Splatoon 2. That means the online functionality Switch owners now enjoy for free will be gated behind a paywall later this year.

"From February onward we will be releasing a wide variety of new software titles one after the next", Kimishima said.

In that sense, Nintendo stated the following: "The second year is important".

Fed Lowers The Boom On Wells Fargo As Yellen Exits
Wells Fargo & Co makes up approximately 2.6% of Citizens & Northern Corp's holdings, making the stock its 6th biggest holding. Patriot Financial Group Insurance Agency LLC grew its holdings in shares of Wells Fargo & Co by 0.3% during the 2nd quarter.

Profits for the three months ending in December soared 260 percent, to just over $1 billion, beating analyst expectations, Nintendo said on Wednesday.

Nintendo executives also expressed hopes for its upcoming Nintendo Labo, whose trailer shows the Switch being played with cardboard concoctions, resembling a piano, fishing rod, robot and other items.

Similarly, Nintendo's efforts in miniaturized, classic game consoles like the NES and SNES Classic Editions are seen as "an opportunity to garner interest in Nintendo Switch from those who have not interacted with video games in a long time, or ever".
