Buoyed by the releases of Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7, 3DS was the biggest-selling console in the United Kingdom last week.

Nearly 70,000 units of the console were sold around the UK in the last week, MCV reports. By comparison, the 3DS racked up 113,000 sales at launch, so 70,000 in a week is a pretty healthy number.

With some stores reporting scarce 3DS stocks the machine could have a very good Christmas ahead.
