    I see Animal Crossing is a great neighborhood, with more than seven million residents ^_^

    (I’m really glad for the sales!)

    Still waiting for Tomodachi Collection. Apparently Reggie mentioned they were looking into it months ago, but I wonder if anything ever came of it.

    They should have made Animal Crossing for the Wii U. Easy profit.

  • D-Omen

    Man, Animal Crossing and Luigi’s Mansion have been such slam dunks on the 3DS, especially compared to past instalments.

  • Kid Kuma

    I know it’s accumulative X/Y sales as they’re two different games and some people might have bought both copies. However they’re practically the same game, so 11 million? That’s ridiculous. Shows the true power of handheld sales.

    “Fire Emblem: Awakening” didn’t brake the 1 million mark? :(

      I wouldn’t really worry about that: it was considered a GREAT success by Nintendo and was a Frontrunner for GotY around the net despite being an Early Year release.
