Nintendo has given their financial results for the fiscal year ended March 31, and appears to be riding a wave of momentum following the 1-2 punch of Pokémon Go-fueled 3DS sales and the successful Switch launch. The company isn't as bullish on Switch projections as some had hoped, but it would still be a great first full year if they can get close to their projected number.
