3DS smashes sales records Down Under

Publish date:

Nintendo's 3DS has outperformed the company's previous platforms in Australia.

The handheld has sold more than 200,000 units in its first 37 weeks, setting a new sales record for the region.

It has not only surpassed the early sales of other handhelds, but even home consoles, according to CVG.

As with other markets, 3DS got off to a slow start Down Under but the global price cut and release of titles such as Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 has reversed the device's fortunes.
