Nintendo 3DS XL Sells Nearly 200,000 In Japan

Mario sales soar in Japan… or some other pun about flying

According to official retail estimates, in just two days Nintendo has sold nearly 200,000 units of its new 3DS XL handheld across Japan. The console went on sale July 28th and has reportedly sold an estimated 193,000 units domestically.

For comparison sake, in November 2009 Nintendo sold roughly 100,000 DSi XL units during the handheld’s first two days a launch while the DSi sold about 170,000 units during its opening weekend.

The good news doesn’t end there for Nintendo though as it’s reported that newly released New Super Mario Bros 2 has shifted an astonishing 430,000 units in its first two days. Back in 2006 New Super Mario Bros on the DS sold 865,024 while New Super Mario Bros Wii managed a whopping 936,734 in it’s opening week. However take into account a couple of things. Firstly these figures are from four days total while New Super Mario Bros 2 is just two. Secondly we haven’t been informed of the digital sales yet so this figure is likely to inflate. Whatever the case, Mario is stomping all over the competition over in Japan as is the 3DS XL.

The 3DS XL launched over here last Saturday but we’ve yet to find out just how well the console did. New Super Mario Bros 2 will also see release August 17th.
