United States figures are in
Although The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D launched in the middle of the month, 11 days was all it took for the Zelda remake to establish itself as the second best-selling single-format game for the month of June.
According to independent market research company NPD Group, more than 283,000 copies of the game were sold in the United States last month, a pretty good number considering the game was on the market for less than two weeks.
As far as hardware goes, June saw Nintendo selling 386,000 units in the DS range, 273,000 Wii and 143,000 3DS consoles. That's more than 800,000 combined hardware sales for the month of June. Each platform also saw double-digit growth over the month of May.
With all these additional Wii consoles that Nintendo has sold, the total installed base in the United States now stands at 36 million.
