Nintendo sells 5 million 3DS units in North America

Happy days are heading toward Nintendo as the NPD Group (which tracks sales of video games in the US) has confirmed Nintendo 3DS has passed 5 million units sold in North America. With 3DS XL, New Super Mario Bros. 2, Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, and Paper Mario: Sticker Star set to release in the coming months, Nintendo has the momentum which should last throughout the rest of the year. What are you looking forward to most from Nintendo’s upcoming titles?

“Nintendo 3DS is entering the next phase of its life cycle with new hardware, new games and proven franchises. This milestone shows we’ve got a great foundation to build from, The game lineup for Nintendo 3DS last holiday season was one of the strongest in our history. We’re poised to top it this year. Every week, gamers will have the best franchises in the world in a glasses-free 3D experience that can’t be found anywhere else. Add Wii U into the mix and it’s a great time to be a Nintendo fan.”

- Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing.
