SUPER SMASH BROS. FOR NINTENDO 3DS SELLS 705,000 UNITS IN TWO DAYS, 55 PERCENT INCREASE IN HARDWARE

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS logo


Oct. 16, 2014 - Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS launched on Oct. 3 in the U.S., and even with only two days of data included in NPD’s September report, the game still managed to finish as the No. 4 best-selling software SKU for the month with more than 705,000 total units sold. Of that total, more than 135,000 units were sold digitally through the Nintendo eShop. The game’s biggest impact however may be on hardware sales. More than 140,000 units of the Nintendo 3DS family of systems were sold in September, an increase of 55 percent over sales in August.

Sales of Wii U hardware also saw double-digit increases in September, increasing by nearly 50 percent over sales in August. These gains were driven in particular by two software titles: Hyrule Warriors and Mario Kart 8. Hyrule Warriors launched on Sept. 26 and has already sold more than 190,000 combined units in the U.S. alone. Mario Kart 8 sold nearly 60,000 combined units in its fifth month on the market, bringing its lifetime total in the U.S. to nearly 1.2 million total units.

A great lineup of games for Wii U begins on Oct. 24 with Bayonetta 2, the Wii U exclusive that currently holds a 91 score on Metacritic. That continues with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U on Nov. 21 and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker on Dec. 5. Also launching on Nov. 21 is amiibo, Nintendo’s foray into the toys-to-life category. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U will be the first game to launch with amiibo integration. Other games that will support amiibo include Mario Kart 8, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Mario Party 10 and Yoshi’s Woolly World, with more to come. More details about compatibility and functionality of amiibo may be found at http://amiibo.com.

The Nintendo 3DS library will soon be bolstered by two of the most anticipated games of 2014: Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire (Nov. 21).

*Data regarding physical sales of games in September 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.

TAKE TO THE SKIES AND SOAR IN POKÉMON OMEGA RUBY AND POKÉMON ALPHA SAPPHIRE

Legendary Pokémon Latios and Latias Mega Evolve and Help Trainers Navigate the Hoenn Region by Air, Special Demo Version Details, New Mega Evolved Pokémon, and Gameplay Features Revealed

BELLEVUE, Wash. – October 14, 2014 – Today, The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced that the Legendary Pokémon Latios can be obtained in Pokémon Omega Ruby while Latias can be obtained in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire when the titles launch November 21 for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. These high-flying Dragon- and Psychic-type Pokémon can Mega Evolve fly freely through the skies of the Hoenn region.

Soar

Trainers can hop on the back of their Mega Latios or Mega Latias and navigate the region through the air at high speed while performing midair tricks and hairpin turns. This brand-new method of travel, called Soar, takes a player’s Pokémon adventure to new heights and provides access to Mirage spots, where rare Pokémon—including Legendary Pokémon—and valuable items may appear.

Eon Ticket

It was also revealed today that Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire players will be able to obtain the Eon Ticket later this year, granting them access to the Hoenn region’s Southern Island where they can encounter and catch Latias in Pokémon Omega Ruby or Latios in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. This is the only way players can catch these Legendary Pokémon in-game, as they cannot be caught during normal gameplay. More details about when and how players can obtain the Eon Ticket will be announced later this year.

Special Demo Version Available Soon!
Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 2DS owners can now embark on a special Hoenn adventure by downloading the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Special Demo Version. The Special Demo Version gives players a glimpse of the adventure coming on November 21, including the chance to battle with Sceptile, Blaziken, or Swampert and seeing their Mega-Evolved forms in action!

To obtain the Special Demo Version, players first need to obtain a serial code, which is being distributed at no charge in various ways, and head to Nintendo eShop on their Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo 2DS device to download the Special Demo Version.

Pokémon fans who have a Pokémon Trainer Club account and have opted to receive the Pokémon Trainer Club Newsletter will receive a serial code for the Special Demo Version when the newsletter is emailed to them on October 21. Get a Pokémon Trainer Club account at no cost at Pokemon.com by October 19 to receive the October 21 newsletter and Special Demo Version serial code. Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire are sold separately beginning November 21.

Additional methods of how to receive a serial code for the Special Demo Version will be announced soon.

New Mega-Evolved Pokémon: Mega Pidgeot

New Mega-Evolved Pokémon: Mega Pidgeot and Mega Beedrill!
Mega Pidgeot and Mega Beedrill will make their debut in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.

Boasting increased Special Attack and high Speed, Mega Pidgeot makes quick work of its opponents. Pidgeot can learn the Flying-type move Hurricane, which creates a chaotic storm around the target, potentially causing confusion. Coupled with its No Guard Ability, which allows all moves to land a hit regardless of accuracy, Mega Pidgeot can be a saving grace in any battle.

Upon Mega Evolving, poisonous stingers on Beedrill’s tail and arms grow, new barbs sprout from its legs, and its Attack receives a boost. The Bug-type move Fell Stinger raises Beedrill’s Attack stat by two stages when it causes an opponent to faint, and its Adaptability Ability raises the power of its moves of the same type from the standard 150% to 200%, making Mega Beedrill a great offensive teammate.

PlayNav Plus

Navigate Your Adventure with PlayNav Plus!
PokéNav Plus is a nPlayNav Plusew tool designed to help players navigate their journey across the Hoenn region. PokéNav Plus is packed with applications to help players find hidden or specific types of Pokémon in tall grass via the DexNav, check all kinds of Hoenn region information via the AreaNav, and view news from around Hoenn and from other players whom you’ve passed with BuzzNav.

The PlayNav function offers three popular features that first appeared in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y—the Player Search System (PSS), Pokémon-Amie, and Super Training. The PSS allows players to trade Pokémon and battle with others nearby or around the world with a Wi-Fi connection. Trainers can play with their Pokémon and feed them treats called Poké Puffs in Pokémon-Amie, and the bond between Trainer and Pokémon will grow. Super Training is a fun way to prepare your Pokémon team for battle. PlayNav also allows players to manage their O-Powers, special advantages that can be kept or shared with others as the game progresses, and view announcements via the Holo Caster.
