Nintendo’s financial report has been released for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2015, and the Big N has plenty of cash in the bank. Their “cash and deposits” checks in at ¥534,706 million, which translates to about $4.465 billion in US currency. Their total current assets amount to ¥1,097,597 million, or about $9.168 billion in US currency. While these numbers show that Nintendo has a sizable safety net, they also represent a decrease from three months ago.
These numbers show that Nintendo has a large safety net, but they’ve actually declined from the last quarterly report. As of December 31, Nintendo’s cash and deposits and total current assets stood at
$4.8 billion and $10.2 billion, respectively. Part of this decrease is due to changing exchange rates between the yen and dollar, but looking at it just in yen amounts, Nintendo’s money in the bank has decreased slightly from ¥563,917 million to ¥534,706 million over the past three months.
