Kingdom Hearts 3DS Sold Rather Well, Thanks Very Much

200,000 copies shifted stateside

Nintendo recently released sales figures which suggested that Kingdom Hearts 3DS: Dream Drop Distance shifted 180,000 copies.

This is a pretty respectable figure for an RPG, but it's not entirely accurate. Siliconera has been told by the NPD Group that Nintendo’s figures don’t account for the “Mark of Mastery” collector’s edition of the game - a fact which means that the actual total is much higher than 180,000.

Not content with vague statements, Siliconera pushed NPD for clarity and was told that the numbers were "well beyond" 200,000 units.

That's some pretty sweet numbers right there, which bodes well for future third-party 3DS software.
