3.6 Million 3DS Consoles Sold Worldwide

"A smooth start" says Nintendo

Nintendo predicted 4 million 3DS sales in its first month, but the company's investor meeting reveals it didn't quite hit it, selling 3.6 million consoles around the world since its Japanese launch on 26th February.

On the software side of things, around 9.43m 3DS games have been sold around the globe, with two titles passing the million mark already: Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition and one other, though Nintendo didn't reveal its name.

For the coming financial year, Nintendo expects to sell 16m 3DS consoles worldwide and 62m units of software, a number that will be very attainable considering Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and Super Mario 3DS are both set for release in the next twelve months.
