Well, it's not been a particularly happy time for Nintendo fans since the company announced its financial results and gave various updates - mainly delays. Yet it's not all bad, it really isn't! In fact, the last financial year brought some pleasing successes on the software front for both the Wii U and 3DS.
The usual list of 'million sellers' has 14 titles across Nintendo's systems, which is better than a poke in the eye with a pointy stick. Let's get to the list, shall we?
- Splatoon - 4.27 million sales
- Super Mario Maker - 3.52 million sales
- Mario Kart 8 - 2.39 million sales (lifetime is 7.5 million)
- Yoshi's Woolly World - 1.37 million sales
- Super Smash Bros. for Wii U - 1.15 million sales (lifetime is 4.8 million)
- Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer - 3.04 million sales
- Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire - 1.9 million sales (lifetime is 11.84 million)
- Fire Emblem Fates - 1.84 million sales
- Mario Kart 7 - 1.56 million sales (lifetime is 13.26 million)
- Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS - 1.36 million sales (lifetime is 8.12 million)
- Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon - 1.22 million sales
- The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes - 1.14 million sales
- New Super Mario Bros. 2 - 1.09 million sales (lifetime is 10.25 million)
- Animal Crossing: New Leaf - 1.07 million sales (lifetime is 10 million)
A healthy mix of new and evergreen titles overall, with the Wii U's two biggest hits actually outperforming the top 3DS title. In fact, that statistic does highlight why 3DS software sales were down overall, but Nintendo will take some pleasure from seeing a number of varied million-sellers on the books.
