Of the 20 or so 3DS games available around the globe, so far two have broken through the million sales barrier — Capcom's Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition and Miyamoto's cute 'em up Nintendogs + Cats.
According to Nintendo's latest investor report, the canine collection sold 1.71m units since launch, an impressive total considering Nintendo has sold 3.6m 3DS consoles worldwide. By our maths, that's nearly 50% of 3DS owners picking up a pet to go with their new machine, though it has a long way to go to beat the original Nintendogs sales of over 23m units worldwide.
