Nintendo's latest financial results have been published, with a generally mixed outcome, and its usual reports for the nine month period have included some interesting information. As always there's an updated release line-up, too, which on this occasion mostly keeps its powder dry.

The one change that's immediately apparent relates to The Legend of Zelda for Wii U, which was given a worrying 'TBC' release window in the Q2 report. This time around it's back to a generic '2016', which at least points to some additional confidence that the release will hit the franchises' Anniversary celebrations this year.

One title that has slipped is Project Guard, which was stubbornly listed with a 2015 window back in the October reports. It's now dropped to join its compatriot Project Giant Robot in the dreaded 'TBC' window, suggesting that Nintendo's not entirely sure of what to do with the projects first revealed at E3 2014.

There are few other details of note in the schedule - Star Fox Zero has unchanged dates for North America and Japan, with Europe still simply stating 'April'. Fire Emblem Fates is now listed as two separate entries for Europe, as it is for North America, though the former region still only has '2016' for a prospective date, which will hopefully change soon.

We're pleased at the subtle change for The Legend of Zelda on Wii U, in any case - here's hoping Nintendo achieves its goal of sharing that with us this year.
