Nintendo has revealed that it has shifted 2.1 million Nintendo 2DS systems since the handheld launched October 12th. The Nintendo 3DS has shipped 42.7 million units since February 2011. The original Nintendo DS system has shipped a staggering 154 million units in total. Nintendo also revealed that it has sold 7.38 million copies of Animal Crossing: New Leaf worldwide. This is since its Japanese release in November 2012.



  1. WELL DONEANIMAL CROSSING! even though I hate(or any life sim aprt from SimCity and……smash.(lol….life for me. too many universes came together!) that game but WELL DONE!


    • I don’t know why people think it looks bad… it literally looks like a 3DS, but their is no space in the center where a clam shall design would be…

      It’s also wedge shaped, but who judges a console’s appearance from it’s side view?…not to mention a wedge isn’t exactly an “ugly” shape.


  2. Oh 2DS, I loathe you so much. Die in a hole.
    XL all the way. After I upgraded to XL I looked at the inventory screen on my friend’s original 3DS and it seemed so tiny. I don’t know how people put up with it.

    Your article is weird. Can you please elaborate on such a vague article.

    Granted, this is great that they sold so many, but what does this mean for Nintendo?

    Can these sales improve Nintendo’s standing in the gaming console arena?

    With these sales of 2ds, do you feel the console is viable for consumers? Important to have?

    Does the sales of AC:New Leaf mean the game should be imported to Wii U to improve console sales, since the sales are so dramatic on the 3/2DS?

    What about Pokemon?

    I have more questions… but… lets start small.


  4. who is this ‘Nintendo Commander’ tit? he already said he doesnt have a wii u so by my calculations he is part of the problem that nintendo is currently having, if ur a fan, support the system, theres already enough games out on it to justify the purchase. Jesus hes on here spewing garbage every article about ‘high command’ sounding like a fucking nutcase and he doesnt even have the system?????


  5. You really make it appear so easy along with your presentation however I in finding this topic to be actually something that I believe I would by no means understand. It seems too complex and very vast for me. I am taking a look forward on your subsequent publish, I’ll attempt to get the hang of it!
