After what seemed like a truly difficult period, Nintendo looks like it could turn its first yearly profit in four years.
According to Reuters, Nintendo revealed that it turned a 9.3 billion yen ($86.1 million)* operating profit during the period starting in July and ending in September. Reuters adds that analysts, however, were expecting a 3.7 billion yen loss. That doesn't seem to have happened!
Nintendo says it's still on track for a 40 billion yen ($370 million) annual profit.
*Note: An earlier version of this story quoted an incorrect operating profit amount for this period—this has been fixed.
