The lights are on
With the recent update to the 3DS Mii Plaza, Nintendo offered new purchasable StreetPass games that have already proven to be very popular.
Nintendo president Satoru Iwata told Japanese site Tokyo Keizai Online (as translated by Siliconera) that in the month since the games' release, approximately $4 million in profit have already been generated.
The games cost $5 each to download, but you can download all the games together for a discounted price of $14.99. For more information on the games, you can check out this trailer detailing each one.

Our TakeNintendo had some disappointing financials to report recently related to the Wii U. It's good to hear that even with the Wii U struggling, Nintendo is succeeding elsewhere. Maybe this will help turn things around for the Wii U.

That's awesome, I'm glad I bought these.
I'm not really interested in these games, but I'm still glad to hear that they are selling well.
While $4,000,000.00 is a hefty number, having downloaded and played all these games, I'm not surprised.
Nice. Real nice.
Nintendo has finally woken up to the fact that there is a lot of money to be made in the online space. These new games are great. Mii Force being the standout.
Its cool these made money, they are fun
now that's profit!
The 3DS is the new "it prints money."
Damn! That fast? They should keep this up! Those board of directors at Nintendo must be stunned that new trends make money!
The 3DS is truly a king.
Wii u will turn around. Nintendos financials were better than either sony or MS
