Nintendo_3ds_xl

Nintendo 3DS continued its strong year with another first: The platform was the best-selling video game hardware platform in the United States in May. The launch of Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D on May 23 and another strong month for Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon helped Nintendo 3DS software sales in stores increase by more than 60 percent over the same time last year. Nintendo 3DS also had two of the top three best-selling software SKUs for the month, with Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D at No. 2 and Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon at No. 3.

At the recently concluded E3 trade show in Los Angeles, Nintendo defined its proposition for the holiday season by showcasing a cavalcade of great games coming for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS systems in 2013. Starting in August and continuing through the end of the year, Wii U will launch one major game a month, including Pikmin 3 (Aug. 4), The Wonderful 101 (Sept. 15), The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD (October), Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (November) and Super Mario 3D World (December). Nintendo 3DS will build on its momentum with the successive launches of Mario & Luigi: Dream Team (Aug. 11), Pokémon X and Pokémon Y (Oct. 12) Mario Party for Nintendo 3DS (name not final, November) and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (November).

    1. Yeah, I’m seeing conflicting reports, both claiming NPD. Nintendo sent out a press release saying 3DS was the best seller; I’m seeing other sites report that Xbox 360 was.

      I haven’t looked into it, so I’m not quite sure right now. But to be honest, I also don’t care.

      1. Maybe is just handheld numbers but I also think that the 360 could have taken a hit in sales with the new console announcements.

    1. Did you look at the list of what’s coming to the Wii U? If not, think twice before posting your comment. The Wii U is not gonna die. It’s gonna live on with the high quality AAA first party games and Indie games. Never underestimate Nintendo and just play the game.
