    1. Every time a Dragon Quest (or Monster Hunter) game gets published a Nintendo 3DS gets smashed on a table, so people need a new unit to replace the old (dead) one.
      That’s the reason why xDS continue to sell that much.

  1. Software sales for Splatoon 2 are wrong, its been reported that the game sold 958k already last week, 648k on its first 3 days, feels like they are adding the new 100k+ sells on the 3 days sells of Splatoon 2 to make DQXI looks more massive in comparison to other games.

        Or for people that want a stronger version of their already favorite system. Kind of like what Nintendo did with the n3DS for those that wanted a stronger 3DS & better 3D.

    Wow. I wonder if the 3DS sales will surpass the Switch again when the Ultra Sun/Moon games release.
