NPD October: Wii U Sales Are Up And Amiibo Sales Were 800,000

We found out which titles were the best-selling in the United States during the month of October, but we didn’t really receive any substantial hardware figures. However, the NPD has confirmed to IGN that Wii U sales have increased by 40% over last October. The company says that sales of its Wii U console “have increased more than 20 percent in the first 10 months of 2015,” compared to the same time period last year. This is partly due to the Super Mario Maker bundle which has proved to be a hit with consumers and that’s not all. Amiibo cards and figure sales reached 800,000 in the United States in October alone. Lifetime sales of amiibo are now at 9 million in the United States.

NPD: Super Mario Maker Drives 110 Percent Lift In Wii U Hardware Sales

The ability to create, play and share your own unique Super Mario levels was a dream 30 years in the making for Mario fans. Turns out it was also a great reason to jump into the Wii U experience. The Super Mario Maker game for the Wii U console launched in the U.S. on Sept. 11 and sold nearly 445,000 combined units in its first three weeks (Sept. 11, 2015 – Oct. 3, 2015), bringing the lifetime total to more than 500,000 combined units in the U.S. alone (Sept. 11 – Oct. 19, 2015). Perhaps the biggest impact however has been on hardware sales. For the full month of September, sales of Wii U hardware in the United States increased by nearly 110 percent over sales in August. Software sells hardware and no one sells hardware like Mario.

Other Nintendo highlights from September include:

  • Through the first nine months of 2015, sales of Nintendo 3DS hardware have increased by nearly 25 percent over the same time frame in 2014.
  • Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer for the Nintendo 3DS system launched on Sept. 25 and sold nearly 115,000 total units in its first week on the market.

That momentum should continue into the holiday selling season, as Nintendo gets ready to launch a series of great games for both of its platforms. The recently released Chibi Robo! Zip Lash (Nintendo 3DS, Oct. 9) and Yoshi’s Woolly World (Wii U, Oct. 16) will soon be joined by The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes (Nintendo 3DS, Oct. 23), YO-KAI WATCH (Nintendo 3DS, Nov. 6), Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival (Wii U, Nov. 13), Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash (Wii U, Nov. 20), Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon (Nintendo 3DS, Nov. 20), Xenoblade Chronicles X (Wii U, Dec. 4) and Devil’s Third (Wii U, Dec. 11).
