Nintendo also looks to be having a very profitable 2017, with the SNES Classic Edition selling 2 million units, and Super Mario Run hitting the 200 million download mark.

Despite all that, the mobile runner, Nintendo's first attempt at smartphone gaming (aside from the app Miitomo), has actually managed to disappoint Nintendo with its financial success. Unlike the more linear level design of Super Mario Galaxy, Odyssey hearkens back to Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine with its many sprawling, sandbox-style Kingdoms, each of which houses a myriad of Power Moons and other collectibles to find.

For now, Super Mario Odyssey offers a ton of enjoyable gameplay, and hours' worth of secrets to hunt down.

A Confused Sean Hannity Calls Hillary Clinton 'President Clinton'
Hannity at one point started to say " Hillary Clinton ", but stopped and continued on about, "President Clinton". In case anyone's forgotten, Clinton is not president of the United States.

The company also plans to release more updates and improvements for the mobile title, so it certainly sounds like Nintendo does not plan to shift away from Super Mario Run anytime soon.

Even though there were 200 million downloads for the game worldwide, Nintendo's home country Japan, accounted for just 20 million of those downloads.

We find it pretty unusual because one of the major reasons to why the Switch is selling well is because of Super Mario franchise hence it is only right for the majority of Switch gamers to adopt the game. Ultimately, Nintendo is hoping that the game will eventually be seen as an evergreen title, showing solid sales longevity beyond the holiday market period. Put another way, more than a quarter (28.5 percent) of all Switch owners have purchased Super Mario Odyssey in the first three days. The company doubled its profit forecast for its fiscal year ending March 2018, adjusting to reflect an anticipated profit of 120 billion yen (~$1.06 billion), up from its previous forecast of 65 billion yen (~$572.8 million), the latter of which it estimated only three months ago.
