Nintendo 3DS sees 30% increase in sales year-over-year

For the fourth straight month, Nintendo's 3DS handheld was reported as the best-selling video game system in the United States. Sales for the 3DS were bolstered by a strong start for Mario & Luigi: Dream Team and the continued strength of games such as Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon.
More than 6.47 million 3DS units have been sold so far in 2013, Nintendo revealed. This is an increase of nearly 30 percent over the same time frame last year. (3DS, Nintendo, Nintendo DS)

6.47 Million! Between Monster Hunter,Pokemon, and Zelda that number should substantially increase.

exactly all 3 of those are gonna make waves Especially Pokemon. Pokemon is almost always the top selling game on Nintendo Handhelds.

Still have Mario Party, Sonic World, Super Smash Brothers, Legend of Zelda, Bravely Default, most likely a Kirby game at some point..ect..

It's a good thing to have so many games releasing so often. It gives you games to go back and play/catch up on maybe a year or two from now.

When you give us back Final Fantasy, we will give you back Monster Hunter ok?

P.S. I'm pretty sure the 3ds doesn't need a Monster Hunter game to be successful.

While Monster Hunter is great, Pokemon alone does well.

Who care's !
a lot of people buy 3DS because they are eagerly waiting for MH4
I don't care if you want FF to be on your platform , this game has its own wide audience and its becomes a stupid multiplatform game according to Square-Enix policies , Sadly Its no Longer Sony Exclusive so you should say this to Square "Enix" not me .

Pokemon X & Y are gonna send sales through the roof.

You can go ahead and say that again. :P

It is currently 10 million units behind the DS right now (aligned), so it's doing very well but nowhere near as well as the DS
PlayStation_4  +   583d ago
hopefully Pokemon & MH will reverse this worrying trend

Wasn't there a pokemon game released at the time? I could be wrong ofcourse, but if I'm not then that could be the reason.
