Nintendo lowers their forecasts.

Nintendo announced today that the Nintendo 3DS will be launching in Japan on February 26th 2011. Apparently Nintendo had planned that the 3DS would be still launch in 2010 as the company lowered their earnings expectations for the year. Nintendo says that the reasons for the adjusted earning numbers are stronger-than-expected yen appreciation, current sales performance, the sales outlook for the holiday season, and the decided release conditions for the Nintendo 3DS.

Nintendo lowered their net sales forecast for the fiscal year ending March 31st 2011 from 1.4 trillion Yen to 1.1 trillion Yen. The forecasted net income is even lower by over 50%. Instead of 200 billion Yen Nintendo thinks it will only make 90 billion Yen.

These lower forecast implies that Nintendo is not launching anything dramatically new to counter the Xbox 360 Kinect and the Sony Playstation Move market entry this fall. The only thing might be the rumored new Wiimote with integrated Motion Plus dubbed Wii Remote Plus.
