POKÉMON GAMES SELL NEARLY 1.5 MILLION COMBINED UNITS IN FIRST 10 DAYS IN THE U.S.

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Logo Art


Dec. 11, 2014 - Overall sales of Nintendo 3DS software in November increased by more than 40 percent over the same month in 2013, thanks in part to three huge games:

  • Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire: The next great Pokémon adventures for Nintendo 3DS launched on Nov. 21 and have already sold nearly 1.5 million combined physical and digital units in the U.S. alone.
  • Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS: The best-selling individual portable game in the U.S. so far in 2014, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS has sold more than 1.5 million physical and digital units in the U.S. since it launched on Oct. 3.

November was also a strong month for Nintendo on the console side, as sales of Wii U hardware and software increased by more than 10 percent and more than 90 percent, respectively, over the same period in 2013. In fact, the week of Nov. 23 was the biggest single week of Wii U hardware sales since the system launched in November 2012. Other Wii U highlights for the month include:

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U logo
  • Super Smash Bros. for Wii U has sold nearly 710,000 combined units since launching on Nov. 21. With a current Metacritic score of 92, the latest iteration in Nintendo’s venerable fighting franchise is one of the best-reviewed games in the current generation of systems.
  • Nov. 21 also saw the arrival of amiibo, Nintendo’s new platform where gaming’s most recognizable characters can be used in different ways in many compatible games. Sales of amiibo are approximately equal to sales of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U so far, while Link, Mario and Pikachu (in that order) have been the best-selling figures to date.

“This is a ringing endorsement from families and fans that Nintendo has the best variety, the best value and the best gaming experiences for sale this holiday season,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “We’re extremely confident in our holiday proposition and look forward to closing this year strong and starting 2015 with a full head of steam.”


Just a few days ago on Dec. 5, Wii U fans got the one-two punch of Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, the intrepid explorer’s first stand-alone adventure, and NES Remix Pack, which combines previous digital-only games NES Remix and NES Remix 2 in one convenient physical package. More great games are coming for Nintendo systems in the first part of 2015, including Splatoon, Yoshi’s Woolly World and Kirby and the Rainbow Curse for Wii U, and Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. for Nintendo 3DS.

*Data regarding physical sales of games in November are from the NPD Group. Data regarding digital downloads of games and combined physical/digital life-to-date numbers are from Nintendo’s internal sales figures. All numbers, unless otherwise stated, are specific to the United States only.

NINTENDO ANNOUNCES DETAILS OF SOME 2015 GAMES, INCLUDING A NEW LOOK AT THE LEGEND OF ZELDA FOR WII U

Dec. 5, 2014 -

Code Name: S.T.E.A.M.

Nintendo revealed details about three of its biggest games of 2015: The Legend of Zelda, Mario Maker and Code Name: S.T.E.A.M.

Nintendo game designers Shigeru Miyamoto and Eiji Aonuma appeared via video at The Game Awards in Las Vegas on Dec. 5 to walk through some of the new game play of the Wii U installment of The Legend of Zelda franchise. Miyamoto and Aonuma showed off some visually stunning graphics, as well as the vastness of the world. Players can pinpoint locations on the map on the Wii U GamePad, which then appear as beacons in the game as an aid to navigation. The duo also showed off the gliding Sailcloth item, as well as how Epona, Link’s horse, does not need to be directed through every step of her path. Epona will avoid trees and obstacles, just as a real horse would do, leaving Link’s hands free to wield his sword or shoot arrows.

The public got its first look at Mario Maker for Wii U during the E3 video game trade show in June, and new details about the game, which lets users create their own Mario levels, were announced at The Game Awards. This includes the ability to tap the Wii U GamePad screen to change the look of the level design to a number of classic styles, including Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3, Super Mario World and New Super Mario Bros. U. Each style includes game mechanics unique to the original game, such as ground-pound or wall-jump maneuvers. Players can integrate these mechanics into designs for the various titles featured in the game. This game will launch in 2015, which will be the 30th anniversary of the original Super Mario Bros. game.

Nintendo also revealed a March 13 launch date for Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. for Nintendo 3DS and announced a multiplayer mode that lets players compete against one another in local and online matches.

The Legend of Zelda

The event also featured performances from legendary Nintendo composer Koji Kondo. Nintendo won four awards, including Developer of the Year, Best Fighting Game for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Best Sports/Racing Game for Mario Kart 8 and Best Family Game for Mario Kart 8. Nintendo also congratulates its third-party partner Yacht Club Games, which won Best Independent Game for Shovel Knight, which is available in the Nintendo eShop on both Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.

Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two

To celebrate Walt Disney’s birthday this week, Disney is discounting Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two on Wii U, Disney Planes on Nintendo 3DS and Wii U and other fun games until 8:59 a.m. PT on Dec. 8.

Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two returns Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit to Wasteland, an alternate world filled with 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions.

But for the first time, Mickey and Oswald will join forces as true partners – Mickey with his magical paint brush that wields paint and thinner, and Oswald with his powerful remote control that allows him to command electricity.

This new co-op play combined with enhanced in-game physics will further enhance the idea that “PlayStyle Matters” – a unique approach to gameplay pioneered by Warren Spector where players dynamically tackle different challenges in order to explore all possibilities and storylines, but with consequences for their chosen actions.

Wii U system players will utilize the Wii U GamePad to view a fully detailed, real-time map of Wasteland with waypoints and markers to help guide them through the game and complete the different quests and side-quests.

Disney Planes Wii U


Players will also be able to use the GamePad to access sketches and activate them to use in-game for a more immersive experience.

In Disney Planes, get over your fear of heights and take to the skies for a daring mid-air adventure that will test your pilot skills and your sense of humor.

After a few flight lessons with Skipper, throttle forward over the world of Cars, just like Disney’s hit movie Planes.

Fly solo or fly with a wingman to complete flight objectives, or challenge each other to an Air Rally race or a Balloon Pop challenge.

And if you want to stretch your wings, get airborne with a leisurely Free Flight.

Just don’t look down!
