Nintendo has released its financial report for the first quarter of the fiscal year (April 1st through June 30th, 2015), and it includes a forecast for the future. For the entire fiscal year (April 1st, 2015 through March 31st, 2016), Nintendo expects to sell 7.6 million 3DS units globally and 3.4 million Wii U units. By comparison, Nintendo expected to sell 12 million 3DS units and 3.6 million Wii U units last year and fell short of that goal, selling 8.73 million and 3.38 million respectively. Their expectations for this year are very close to the actual numbers from last year, so Nintendo expects to continue at a similar rate.
Nintendo also gave projections for software in the same time period. 3DS is expected to move 56 million pieces of software, while Wii U is expected to sell 23 million pieces of software. Comparing to last year again, 3DS software sales were 62.74 million and Wii U software sales were 24.4 million, so Nintendo is expecting declined numbers this year.
