New 3DS enjoys bumper sales day

Nintendo has hailed the launch of its New 3DS and the success of two of its games.

The New 3DS and New 3DS XL arrived last week alongside a remake of The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. The former was the best-selling single platform title this week, while Monster Hunter 4 is the fastest-selling game in the series.

And the launch of New 3DS caused the hardware market to rise 57 per cent week-on-week.

We’re really pleased with how Majora’s Mask 3D and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate have performed,” said Nintendo UK’s director of marketing Shelly Pearce.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate has significantly outperformed its predecessor and The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D has debuted at the top spot in the individual format chart.

We’ve also seen a strong start for the New 3DS and we’re looking forward to building this momentum.”
