3DS sells 4 million in 2011; New Mario Party, Pokemon announced

It’s no secret that the 3DS is not selling as well as Nintendo would like…

Sorry, wrong article. That was actually the opening sentence to our news report on the 3DS’s August price drop. Needless to say, it doesn’t quite apply on the third day of 2012, as Nintendo has announced that they sold four million 3DS handhelds in the US in 2011.

Besides the sales turnaround of their newest portable system, Nintendo had a very good year last year. Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land became the first games to sell a million copies on the 3DS while The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword also pushed a million on the Wii.

To ensure that the 3DS continues printing money, Nintendo wasted no time in announcing that two of their biggest franchises, Mario Party and Pokemon, will make the jump to the handheld in the near future.

The word “duh” comes to mind. As does the word “cha-ching.”
