A little noise plays whenever the speed of the jump rope is increased, so we recommend playing Super Mario Odyssey in docked mode while playing the mini-game, as the speakers of your TV will likely make it easier to hear the woman's shouts alongside the noise. In total, since its release in late September, the Super Nintendo Classic Mini was sold over 160,000 copies in France.

We've already written about the sales of the new Nintendo Switch console, which have been so outstanding that the device is on track to overtake the lifetime sales of the Wii U within a year. This newest title in the Super Mario series received many awards this year at the largest game shows in Western markets, such as E3 and gamescom, and consumers had high expectations leading to its release.

Super Mario Odyssey might be a runaway hit for Nintendo on its Switch platform, but its mobile game Super Mario Run hasn't been as big of a success. For comparison, the company sold roughly 200,000 NES Classics during that system's launch month, although it's safe to say that number would've been higher if Nintendo had made more of them. Not bad for what amounts to a nostalgia cash-in.

One of Nintendo's latest business strategies involves spreading popular Nintendo IP to mobile devices. However, Nintendo claims that despite this impressive numbers, the game " had not yet reached an acceptable profit point". And the company is looking to expand their reach even further with the upcoming release of Animal Kingdom Pocket Camp, a game Kimishima says he hopes even non-gamers will play every day.

From 2012 on through 2016, Nintendo was in a dreary place, but it seems to have found its footing in 2017.

How long that will last is anyone's guess. The ultra-powerful Xbox One X is set to launch in November.
