Nintendo 3DS Is Leading Game System For Second Month In A Row
Nintendo managed to sell 225,000 3DS systems in the month of June, which gave it the leading spot for US console sales for the second month in a row.
The jump in sales is attributed to the release of Animal Crossing New Leaf. A game which sold more than 505,000 units (both physical and digital copies). Over 20% of the game’s sales were done through Nintendo’s eShop.
This alone is proof that as soon as Nintendo puts out 1st party titles on hardware, it can sell units. Hopefully the WiiU will follow this trend of success in the coming future.
