NPD September: Wii U sales up, 3DS tops hardware charts

Nintendo has announced strong sales results in September for both Wii U and 3DS.

The company issued a press release just ahead of NPD’s September 2013 report, revealing that Wii U sales were up 200 per cent month-over-month during the period.

The Wii U Deluxe Bundle’s $50 price cut and the recently released The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD bundle likely played the largest roles in the sales spike.

The 3DS had a strong US retail showing for the month, finishing on top of the hardware category for the fifth month straight.

The launch of Pokemon X & Y and the arrival of the 2DS during this month will likely see a repeat performance for Nintendo’s handheld when October’s results come in.
