  • News Kirby Star Allies Sets A New Series Sales Record

    Surpassing Nightmare in Dreamland, at last

    Last month Kirby Star Allies ended a relatively quiet start to 2018 as the first major first party release on the Switch. We thought it was pretty good, and while it didn’t seem like a particularly exceptional release in the pink puff’s long lineage, new NPD results show that it apparently was quite a...

  • News Shovel Knight Just Crossed Two Million Units Sold

    For shovelry!

    Shovel Knight has been one of the biggest indie games to come out in the past few years, demonstrating that not every Kickstarter campaign has to end in a middling final product. The core game was excellent enough on its own, but Yacht Club Games has followed it up with two other full-length campaigns (and a third one to come) that...

  • News Nicalis Is Running A Sale On The North American Switch eShop

    Cave Story! Issac! VVVVVV!

    Nicalis has been a company that’s given the Switch plenty of solid support, bringing the likes of quality games like Cave Story+, The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+, and The End is Nigh to Nintendo’s platform. Now, some of these games can seem a little on the pricey side—like the 14-year-old Cave Story going for...

  • News October NPD Results Show the 3DS Experiencing Steady Growth

    Five months straight of higher year-on-year sales

    With the Nintendo Switch just on the horizon, many have wondered how it will impact Nintendo's business strategy in the coming months and years. It's obvious that the Wii U is being put out to pasture – the console's already ceased production – but what of the 3DS? Nintendo has shown that...









  • News amiibo Sales Continue to Gain Momentum as Over Eight Million Cards Are Shipped

    Updates on the most popular amiibo are also given

    It's clear that amiibo is a true highlight for Nintendo's business at the moment, with over 20 million units shipped in a little under a year. When you consider the stock issues that were prominent in the early months, particularly, it's evident that it's a product that's truly taken off for the...

  • News Rejoice, The Wii U Has Finally Outsold Sega's Ill-Fated Dreamcast

    To sell this many takes ages

    Buried within the details of Nintendo's recently announced second quarter earnings for 2015 it was revealed that the Wii U has now sold 10.73 million units. While this will be a small consolation to the bean counters at Nintendo (after all the original Wii has sold a whopping 101 million units to date), it is significant...

  • News Here's a Breakdown of 3DS Software and Hardware Sales This Year

    Looking good, Nintendo

    Nintendo released a lot of new information at the latest investors strategy and while some of this was highly anticipated, some of it was also just plain fascinating to see. Among this information was sales data for 3DS software and hardware sales. It seems like the 3DS is still doing pretty well in the West, though Japan is...

  • News Nintendo Confirms That amiibo Sales Have Now Reached 21 Million


    We all know that amiibo figures are popular, either from struggling to find stock of some favourites or just from the many conversations on the topic with Nintendo fans. Some shoppers don't even seem to buy them to use in games, but rather as collectibles; Nintendo won't care how they're used as long as they sell. In remarks at the press...

  • News Vital Wii U and 3DS Releases Join the Million-Seller Club

    Updated lifetime game sales for both systems released

    Nintendo has released its Q2 financial results covering the first six months of this year, and the outcome's largely positive. Overall sales are up in comparison to last year, which can be put down to improvements in hardware sales for both Wii U and 3DS, the continuing popularity of amiibo and,...

  • News Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Passes Four Million Global Sales

    A monster hit

    The Monster Hunter franchise has become increasingly important to Capcom, over the course of 10 years establishing itself as one of the company's most consistent IPs. It's growing in the West, too, which boosts our confidence that the upcoming Monster Hunter X (Cross) will eventually make its way out of Japan. Monster Hunter 4...

    Super Mario Maker has now been available for around three weeks, keeping Wii U owners busy as they play and create clever, bizarre and fiendish 2D Mario levels.

    Bank holiday sales fun

    The Spring Bank Holiday weekend has now passed in the UK, and with it retailers were eagerly running promotions and discounts to tempt shoppers to spend some cash.

  • News NPD Survey Outlines Bright Future For amiibo And Other Toys-To-Life Franchises

    These toys mean business

    Despite plenty of ongoing issues with stock shortages and sudden cancellations, we think it's fair to say that the amiibo range has been a fairly lucrative venture for Nintendo. Pre-orders for the latest wave sold out within an hour on the official UK store, and recent NPD Group findings show that this frantic interest among...

  • News Nintendo Has Shipped 10.5 Million amiibo Worldwide


    It's pretty safe to say at this point that amiibo has definitely proven to have been a profitable venture for Nintendo.
