Anima Crossing New Leaf
Nintendo’s Animal Crossing: New Leaf released on November 8th 2012 in Japan and has since made its way across the West for the Nintendo 3DS. In doing so, it’s managed to sell more than 5 million copies worldwide according to the latest financial report from Nintendo. This includes both retail and digital download sales.

While worldwide sales are 5.4 million units, territories outside of Japan account for 1.19 million copies. Even now, the game can be found hanging out in the top 10 of Media Create’s software sales charts.

Worldwide sales for Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon have also been revealed and are currently at 2.65 million units, which again includes both retail and digital downloads. Unlike Animal Crossing, the game has been on sales since March this year for all territories.

Seeing as how Nintendo’s Wii U is facing severe sales problems worldwide, at least the 3DS is going great guns. The year will be far more encouraging as Pokemon X & Y releases this October with other titles like The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Super Smash Bros. on the way.
