Re: Pokemon X & Pokemon Y Announced!
I'd say the 3ds is doing well. It's only on it's second year and they have shipped 22 million, and with games coming out this year such as Pokemon, Animal Crossing, Fire Emblem, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Luigis Mansion, Monster Hunter 4 etc. They are going to sell a lot more units.
It also has a strong current line up: Resident Evil Revelations, Resident Evil mercenaries, Street Fighter, Dead Or Alive, Mario Kart, Mario 3d Land, New Super Mario Bros 2, Zelda Orcarina Of Time, Star Fox 64 3D, Kid Icarus Uprising and a lot more.
It sold 23 mil. as of Sept. So lets go low and say its at 25 mil. right now. That means its probably shipped 30-32 mil. units.
As long as there's a Triforce, there will be a Zelda;
as long as there's a prosperous kingdom, there will be an evil bent on destroying it;
and as long as there's an oppressive force threatening Hyrule, there will be a boy...
in a green tunic, silver shield, and magic blade to stand against it.
