3DS XL sells more than 40,000 units in past week.
Media Create has finally revealed sales figures for the period of August 11th to August 17th, which was the week that Nintendo released Hyrule Warriors. The game’s sales will be revealed later today but it’s reportedly seeing a strong reception. That would make sense since Wii U sales are up by a decent amount.
As compared to the prior week, where the Wii U sold 13,598 units, the console sold 18,161 units in the past week. The Nintendo 3DS XL was far and away the best selling platform of the week with 42,365 units sold. That’s a substantial increase from the prior week’s 33,172 units. Even sales of the regular 3DS are up to 9,429 units in the past week.
Sales of the PS Vita are up from 17,084 units to 20,825 units which doesn’t mark a significant increase. This makes sense considering there haven’t been many big name titles in the past month or so, and really, with the support Sony’s shown lately it’s very possible that these numbers remain the same. Stay tuned for more information on Media Create’s software sales.
