3DS Nears 3 Million Sales in Japan

Mario Kart does the business too

3DS is selling better than ever, with Nintendo president Satoru Iwata telling the Nikkei newspaper (via Andriasang) the system is about to tip the scales at 3 million units sold in Japan — two weeks quicker than the DS reached the same milestone.

The news comes a week after Nintendo confirmed 3DS beat the DS's first-year sales in just eight months.

Iwata also spoke briefly of Mario Kart 7's sales in Japan, where the racer sold a staggering 420,000 units in its first week, about double the first week sales of Mario Kart DS.
