3DS Hardware Sales Rocket In Japan Following  Super Mario 3D Land  Release

3DS Hardware Sales Rocket In Japan Following Super Mario 3D Land Release

November 10, 2011 | By Mike Rose




Sales of the Nintendo 3DS rocketed in Japan last week, thanks in part to the release of the much anticipated Super Mario 3D Land.

For the week ended October 30, data from tracking firm Media Create, and as reported by NeoGAF, shows that the 3DS sold a total of 145,271 units, more than doubling the number of units sold in the previous week.

The sales boost was no doubt due to the release of Super Mario 3D Land in the same week, which saw over 340,000 sales in total.

The PSP and PS3 were left to take up their usual roles in positions two and three, with 27,952 units and 26,966 units sold respectively.

Positions in the chart didn't change at all compared to the previous week, with the Wii holding number four with roughly the same number of units sold week-over-week.

Below are the full sales rankings from Media Create for the week ended November 6, 2011. (The second chart lumps together sales of all models in a given line of hardware.)
