Nintendo Sales for December Released and the Top Seller Is…

2011 is over and 2012 means more video games. Nintendo has released sales numbers of the top Wii, 3DS and DS games. So let us take a look at the top 3.

Super Mario 3D Land takes the lead with over 5 million copies sold worldwide, making Super Mario 3D Land #1 in overall sales for Nintendo. This plumber still has game.

2nd place with 4.5 million units sold worldwide is Mario Kart 7, also for the 3DS. Nintendo’s new Nintendo Network the 3DS is on a better “track”, compared to its first released. With Mario taking the top 2 spots, is there no stopping Mario and the gang in whatever genre he steps into?

Surprisingly Zelda: The Skyward Sword only sold 3.4 million copies worldwide since its November release. Not that great when it had a 2-year hype Nintendo at E3 and TGS, plus winning multiple Game of the Year Awards. (check out our review on Zelda: the Skyward Sword)

The Top 3 spots are to be expected but let us not forget the other games released:

  • 4th was The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D with 2.49 million
  • 5th was Kirby’s Return to Dreamland for the Nintendo Wii with 1.21 million
  • 6th was Kirby: Mass Attack for the Nintendo DS with 1.01 million
