Nintendo has been dribbling out more info on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate ahead of its release this December. Aside from new characters, the company announced -- unsurprisingly -- that the title will be compatible with GameCube controllers, which are preferred by pro players. After today's Nintendo Direct, the company tweeted that a limited edition of the game will be available that includes one of these controllers along with an adapter to use it on the Switch.
Nintendo just murdered Luigi during a livestream about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Killing beloved characters is the point of Smash Bros., after all, and Nintendo took the opportunity to add two more to the list: Simon and Richter Belmont, stars of the Castlevania series.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's veritable museum of Nintendo history extends to the game-maker's iconic music as well. This time out, there are over 900 compositions and Nintendo says if you played them all back to back, it'd take you over 28 hours to hear a repeat. The "My Music" feature is essentially iTunes for Nintendo music.
U.S. hedge fund manager Gabriel Plotkin made a risky bet by increasing his short position in Nintendo Co. just ahead of the company’s earnings report on Tuesday.

The quarterly beat is the latest chapter in the battle between Nintendo and short sellers like Plotkin, which has gripped executives, investors and analysts.

TOKYO—Nintendo Co. said its operating profit nearly doubled in the fiscal first quarter as strong game-software sales more than offset a falloff for its main Switch game console. During the April-June quarter, Nintendo sold 1.88 million of the handheld-hybrid consoles, down from 1.97 million a year earlier—right after its March 2017 release—when component shortages made it hard to keep up with demand. The results suggest Nintendo is on track to make the Switch platform sustainable by selling games for it.

Ultimate" and two "Pokémon: Let’s Go" games later this year. “Sales of downloadable versions of packaged software and add-on content for Nintendo Switch showed especially good growth, bringing digital sales to 18.5 billion yen (68-percent increase on a year-on-year basis)," Nintento said in a press release.
Nintendo (OTCMKTS:NTDOY) reported its first-quarter earnings, with a respectable gain in revenue and another big jump in profit. Switch hardware sales slowed by single digits, which was more than offset by a jump in software sales.

If Nintendo's recent success proves anything, building for the time is more important than making for the future. Nintendo is coming off a massive quarter that saw 88% year over year operating profit on the back of the Nintendo Switch. The Switch is great.
