3DS The Best Selling Nintendo Handheld In History
Suck it, Game Boy.
Apparently, rumors of the 3DS' demise were a bit, shall we say, exaggerated.
According to Nintendo, the new portable achieved record sales, making it the company's fastest selling handheld.
Here's what Mario and Co. had to say:
"U.S. day-one sales numbers for Nintendo 3DS were the highest of any Nintendo hand-held system in our history. More details about U.S. sales numbers will be made public on April 14, when first-week U.S. sales figures will be tallied by the independent NPD Group. Nintendo worked hard to get as much product as possible to retailers on day one to meet demand, and we will continue with these efforts moving forward."
Bravo, guys. Can't wait to see those numbers.
