Nintendo has recorded the best financial results it has had since 2012 thanks to sales of the Wii U hit Splatoon and brisk sales of its amiibo figurines.
The Wii U maker saw net income of ¥8.3 billion ($67.2 million). In the same period a year ago, Nintendo posted a loss of ¥9.9 billion. The weak yen also helped drive company profits. Operating income for the quarter landed at around 1.1 billion yen ($9.3 million).
