Nintendo Sold Over Four Million 3DS Systems in the US in 2011

It looks like Nintendo is seeing some success with the 3DS, as the company announced over four million 3DS systems were sold in the US in 2011. Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7 both sold over one million copies, giving the 3DS more million-selling titles to complement The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. The 3DS has not been without some controversy, as it originally launched at $250 but dropped to $170 not long after. It was one of the fastest price drops for any gaming device, but it looks like the lower price helped Nintendo sell more systems in the US. Nintendo also announced new Mario Party and Pokemon games would be coming to the 3DS, though no release dates were given for either one. The new Pokemon game could tie together the recent Black and White games, or it could be a spinoff like the Mystery Dungeon games. Either way, the Pokemon franchise should help Nintendo sell even more 3DS systems, as will the upcoming Animal Crossing game.
