Mario keeps the coins coming

We all know that 3DS has been doing well in Japan recently, consistently out-performing all other consoles combined on a weekly basis. Nevertheless, it's just passed yet another landmark — six millions sales.

As reported by Andriasang, retail tracker Enterbrain has confirmed that it passed the mark last week, with sales in Japan on 20th May reaching 6,017,206. We can also safely assume that the same landmark has been passed in The Americas, with a total of 5.99 millions sales as of 31st March.

After its early troubles 3DS is making some decent progress, and Nintendo will no doubt be hoping that high profile releases throughout the rest of the year will boost sales further.
