Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon sucks up some impressive sales, too
Nintendo has released new life-to-date global sales figures for its first-party 3DS software library, all of which show that the little 3D-enabled system is attracting a lot of people's attention.
At the top of the list is Animal Crossing: New Leaf, a game which has already amassed a whopping 6.35 million sales, despite only releasing in Japan in November last year and June this year in North America and Europe.
Following in its rather impressive footsteps is Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, which also proved it has legs with 3.13 million copies sold. Nintendo was also keen to mention other sales successes, including the Japan-exclusive Tomadochi Collection (1.63 million units), Mario & Luigi: Dream Team (1.37 million units) and Wii remake Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D (1.19 million units).
Official sales figures for Pokémon X & Y have not yet been released, but we wouldn't be surprised if they'd topped even Animal Crossing: New Leaf's astonishing sales come the next sales figure update.
Are you surprised by the success of the titles above?
