Nintendo may still have an absurd target of 9 million Wii U consoles sold by the end of this fiscal year, but it has shown a marked improvement according to its second quarter financial report. The company sold 300,000 consoles during this quarter, the period from July to September 2013, which is an 87 percent increase over the previous quarter. It also saw an operating loss of ¥23.28 billion ($237 million), which indicates a 20 percent year-on-year improvement.

Meanwhile, 3DS hardware sales are down 22 percent in this quarter, with 2.49 million units sold though software sales rose by 40 percent for 16.37 million units sold in this time. Remember that this doesn’t even account for Pokemon X & Y, which released in October and sold 4 million units worldwide in just two days.

The Wii U saw a greater increase in sales – namely, a 400 percent increase which saw 5.27 million units sold worldwide. Pikmin 3 and Wind Waker HD are apparently the top two highest selling titles. Will Nintendo be able to meet its lofty forecasts? Time will tell.
