Other Nintendo highlights from September include:
- Through the first nine months of 2015, sales of Nintendo 3DS hardware have increased by nearly 25 percent over the same time frame in 2014.
- Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer for the Nintendo 3DS system launched on Sept. 25 and sold nearly 115,000 total units in its first week on the market.
That momentum should continue into the holiday selling season, as Nintendo gets ready to launch a series of great games for both of its platforms. The recently released Chibi Robo! Zip Lash(Nintendo 3DS, Oct. 9) and Yoshi’s Woolly World (Wii U, Oct. 16) will soon be joined by The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes (Nintendo 3DS, Oct. 23),YO-KAI WATCH (Nintendo 3DS, Nov. 6), Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival (Wii U, Nov. 11), Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash (Wii U, Nov. 20), Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon(Nintendo 3DS, Nov. 20), Xenoblade Chronicles X (Wii U, Dec. 4) and Devil’s Third (Wii U, Dec. 11).
