New 3DS enjoys bumper sales day

Publish date:

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.”
