According to Nintendo, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, Wii U Party and Super Mario 3D World each sold 1 million units during the Christmas holidays. Of course, total Wii U sales are 2.41 million units for the past 9 months as profits plummeted by 30 percent.

Nintendo commented on the sales of these titles and also released lifetime software and hardware sales for each of its platforms since launch. “While these titles each sold over one million units, the Wii U business as a whole was not able to recover fully, and the global sales of the Wii U hardware and software reached only 2.41 million and 15.96 million units respectively.

“The Wii U hardware still has a negative impact on Nintendo’s profits owing mainly to its markdown in the United States and Europe, and sales of software, which has high profit margins, did not grow sufficiently.”

The 3DS is still averaging great sales for Nintendo though, with 42.74 million units sold and 152.29 million in software saes. This comes off Nintendo projecting a $335 million loss in its latest financial reports.
