Happy birthday: Nintendo 3DS surpasses 5 million sales in Japan in first year
Nintendo has released Japanese sales figures for the 3DS, and they're looking good.
If you can't read Japanese there's a graph that shows it clearly. The 3DS has surpassed 5 million sales in its first year in Japan, barely beating the Gameboy Advance and well ahead of the juggernaut DS.
Not bad after the early struggles. A price drop and big name games like Super Mario 3D Land, Monster Hunter 3G and Mario Kart 7 will usually do the trick. I have faith Nintendo can keep it up in the coming year.
