Super Mario Maker update out now (version 1.46 Wii U, version 1.03 3DS)
Nintendo conducted a bit of Super Mario Maker maintenance tonight. That was likely done to pave way for a new update which is out now on both Wii U and 3DS.

The maintenance schedule is as follows:
– 5:50 PM PT – 7:30 PM PT
– 8:50 PM ET – 10:30 PM ET

As was the case with Nintendo, Capcom reported its latest financial results today for the fiscal year ending in March. The company’s digital contents business experienced net sales of 58,704 million yen, up 11.7 percent year-over-year. On the other hand, operating income dropped 8.8 percent from last fiscal year, at 11,096 million yen. Net sales for Capcom’s entire business were 87,170 million yen for an increase of 13.2 percent year-over-year.
Capcom noted that Monster Hunter XX, which just shipped in Japan last month, “is off to a promising start”. Monster Hunter Generations (known as Monster Hunter X in Japan) also “achieved solid sales overseas”. The one disappointment in the series was the RPG Monster Hunter Stories – Capcom says it “underperformed.”
