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