Nintendo NX will be launched in March 2017 globally / Pokémon Sun and Moon will not launch globally

The Consolidated Results for the Years Ended March 31, 2015 and 2016 was published by Nintendo on April 27th, 2016. The report states that the new Nintendo NX system will be launched in March 2017 globally. Also of note, Pokémon Sun and Moon will not launch globally at the same time with Nintendo specifically stating that the games will launch in the United States during the holiday season while Europe is slated for late 2016. This is a significant release schedule change since the release of X and Y which were the first Pokémon games to launch worldwide on the same day and include multiple different languages. Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire were released a week later in Europe on November 28th, 2014 compared to the rest of the world which launched on November 21st, 2014.

The report also listed some sales figures for Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon. The game has sold 1.22 million copies worldwide as of March 31st, 2016.

Quotes from the report

Fiscal year ended March 31, 2016
"During the fiscal year ended March 31, 2016, for Nintendo 3DS, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer and Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon were released globally and both became hits, selling 3.04 million and 1.22 million units respectively. There were also multiple hit titles from third-party publishers. However, due to the lack of major titles like Pokémon Omega Ruby/Pokémon Alpha Sapphire and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, which energized the entire 3DS business during the prior fiscal year, the worldwide sales of the Nintendo 3DS hardware and software were 6.79 million and 48.52 million units respectively."

Outlook for fiscal year ending March 31, 2017
"For Nintendo 3DS, we will release Pokémon Sun/Pokémon Moon globally in winter of 2016 (holiday 2016 in the U.S. and late 2016 in Europe). These are the latest titles from the Pokémon series, which has sold 200 million units worldwide since the first title from the series released 20 years ago."
