Posted by at 2:55 pm on May 17, 2013

Nintendo’s 3DSRed 3DS is holding on strong to its place in the hardware charts, backed up by some successful software – and by “some” we mean “2.1 million first-party titles” in the first four months of 2013, in the US only. This is an increase of 52 percent over the same period last year.

Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins sold 94,000 physical and digital copies in the US since its launch on April 24 and hit No. 9 on the April NPD chart. Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon sold 140,000 units in April, for a lifetime total of 530,000 in the states.

Some analysts expected the 3DS to be the only major console with sales up from April 2012, with the Wii, Xbox 360, PS3 and Vita down year-over-year. Findings show the Vita down 57 percent, while the 3DS was up 46 percent with 185,000 sales.
