Hey! Listen! Nintendo is Going to be OK

Super Mario 3D Land and The Legend of Zelda Skyward sword came out only within the past few weeks and they have been doing huge numbers.

  • Super Mario 3D Land has sold over 500,000 units making it the fastest selling handheld Mario game
  • The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword has sold 535,000 units making it the fastest selling Zelda game
Things are also looking up for the 3DS and Wii:
  • Sales of the 3DS increased 49% the week of Super Mario 3D Land's release
  • Sale of the 3DS during Black Friday and the rest of that week were tripled at 325%
  • On Black Friday the Wii sold 500,000 units making it the Wii's biggest black Friday

So things are really looking up for Nintendo! You can find the original story by clicking here.


  1. It would be nice to know exactly how many units the 3DS sold. They gave more specifics on the Wii, but I wonder why not exactly say how many units it was selling during the weekend?

  2. I think that the reason we have not seen exact numbers for the 3DS is because it's Nintendo. They always tend to keep thing a secret. It is a secret to everybody.
