Nintendo had its best fiscal Q1 since 2012 as it beats analyst expectations

Nintendo has found a way to turn a profit from its Wii U and 3DS systems.

This morning, the publisher reported the results of the first quarter of its fiscal 2016, which represents the three months ending June 30. And the company revealed that it generated more than $729 million (90 billion yen) in sales. That is up from $603 million (75 billion yen) during the same period last year. The company also reported an operating income of $9.3 million (1.1 billion yen). That is a major improvement from the loss of $76 million (9.5 billion yen) the company reported during Q1 2015, and it also easily outpaced analyst estimates. Wall Street and financial experts around the world were expecting the company to report a lost of around $1 million. The game maker also reported an earnings per share of 56 cents.
