Nintendo 3DS surpasses four million sales in North America

Nintendo have today confirmed that strong sales during the Christmas period have allowed the Nintendo 3DS install base to surpass four million.

Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 not only became the fastest-selling titles in the history of their respective franchises when they launched, but are each the first titles to achieve one million unit sales within North America.

“One of the strongest software lineups in our history helped Nintendo have a great holiday season and to close 2011 with a full head of steam,” commented Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing.

“Not only have the new Mario and Zelda titles already broken records, but with strong reviews and satisfied customers sharing their positive experiences, all three are also shaping up to be the latest long-tail titles from Nintendo. Couple that with a massive first- and third party lineup in the first part of the year and the prospects for 2012 are extremely promising.”
