Kid Icarus Uprising Sold 135,000+ Copies First Week In The US

NPD analyst Anita Frazier has revealed to IGN that Kid Icarus: Uprising for the Nintendo 3DS managed to sell over 135,000 copies during its first week on sale. Nintendo rather strangely neglected to issue a press release detailing their hardware and software sales in North America during March.

  1. 135,000 in its first week in the U.S. alone?! This may very well be the third 3DS game to reach the 5 million mark!

  2. wow it is a lot, Kid icarus Sold in a week more than what Mario K7 and others sold in a whole month, I’m glad because it is a very good game and it’s nice to play good games from nintendo besides Zelda and mario

  3. That’s good. I love this game, I actually want it to be the first of a new Uprising series just for the brilliant character development. Some of the lines made me laugh out loud.

    1. At first I wasn’t sure about this game, but with all those great scores it get in the reviews I bought it and I’m completely happy with it! It’s a top quality game wich it’s entertaining and the gameplay it’s awesome, the multiplayer addictive and as you say the dialogues are quite funny hehe.
      It deserves to continue selling tons of units and surpass the 5 million mark and more =)

      It will surely continue it’s success so I hope too Medusa don’t go asleep for another 25 years =D XD =)

  4. It says during March, it was only a week for kid icarus, i think it sold good, but could be better.

    1. Me too!!! Although I haven’t played it much don’t want to start anything else until I beat ff4

  5. this is a great game better than the original but the controls need to be worked on and voice chat but i think the real reason it sold well is because well people wana shoot at other people

  6. Well, despite the sales, the game was quite enjoyable. in fact, you might even say it was WORTH THE WEIGHT. (gaben joke)
