Pokemon Omega Ruby And Alpha Sapphire At Nearly 10 Million In Sales


Nintendo have shared software sales for some of their more high-profile first-party Nintendo 3DS and Wii U games. These figures can be found below and represent total sales across all regions, including both physical and download copies as of March 31st, 2015.


Nintendo 3DS software sales:


  • Pokémon X/Y – 13.85 million
  • Mario Kart 7 – 11.70 million
  • Super Mario 3D Land – 10 million
  • Pokémon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire – 9.94 million
  • New Super Mario Bros. 2 – 9.16 million
  • Animal Crossing: New Leaf – 8.94 million
  • Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS – 6.75 million
  • Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon – 4.48 million
  • Tomodachi Life – 4.15 million
  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D – 3.70 million
  • The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D – 2.03 million
  • Kirby Triple Deluxe – 1.78 million


Wii U software sales:


  • Mario Kart 8 – 5.11 million
  • Nintendo Land – 4.68 million
  • Super Mario 3D World – 4.10 million
  • Super Smash Bros. for Wii U – 3.65 million
  • New Super Luigi U – 2.25 million
  • Wii Party U – 1.55 million
  • The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD – 1.52 million


The original Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire sold 16.22 million copies worldwide by the time it was done, so the Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire remakes are nowhere close to catching up. That said, 10 million for a pair of remade games is very respectable. Meanwhile, it should be interesting to see how far Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D can get before it stops selling, given just how different it is from other Zelda games.
