Nintendo Says New Nintendo 3DS Is Its Best Selling Revision To Date Since The Nintendo DSi


In a surprising announcement, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has said that the New Nintendo 3DS is the company’s best-selling revision to date in Japan since the DSi. The remodelled handheld has surpassed sales of the Nintendo 3DS XL, the Nintendo DSi and the DSi XL during the first three weeks of the console going on sale. They’ve handily provided the chart above courtesy of Media Create. Here’s what Nintendo president Satoru Iwata had to say.

We feel that the new “super-stable 3D” function, new “C” stick, and accelerated CPU of the new models have been well-received by our consumers. With the new models in addition to the consecutive release of games which could be double-million sellers, we are confident that Nintendo 3DS will establish a presence in the market in the year-end sales season in Japan.

Thanks, Kallum

  2. I have a DSi XL, but I never understood what it really did differently? Was it just a regular DS with internet capabilities? Even though I also have a DS Lite, I don’t understand it (aside from some extra features).

      1. The only exclusive one i heard was a xenoblade port, which i’m willing to buy. never got my hands on the original.
