In their first 10 days on sale in the U.S., Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire sold nearly 1.5 million copies combined, Nintendo said in an e-mail to Siliconera this afternoon. Both games launched on November 21st.

 

Meanwhile, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS—which launched on October 3rd—has sold more than 1.5 million copies in the U.S. thus far.

 

Finally, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Nov. 21st) has sold nearly 710,000 units in the U.S. thus far. Of even more interest is the fact that the Amiibo figurines, which launched alongside the game, have sold roughly the same amount as the game. Nintendo said Link, Mario and Pikachu (in that order) are their best-sellers.

 

On the Wii U front, Wii U hardware sales increased by more than 10% over the same period in 2013. The week of November 23rd (ie; Smash week) was the biggest single week of Wii U hardware sales since the system’s launch in November 2012.
