Nintendo has also broken the record for highest operating profit earned in a fiscal year by a console maker. The previous record holder was also Nintendo. The developer and publisher have officially beaten their own record. Initially Nintendo had secured the title in 2009, when the Wii and Nintendo DS were the primary consoles for the company at that time. The company continues to hold the record.
