Nintendo Reports Strong Sales of key Titles like Luigi’s Mansion, Fire Emblem Awakening, and Star Fox 64 3D
Nintendo wrapped up their 3DS focused Nintendo Direct this morning, and information on the firm just keeps pouring in. Reggie Fils-Aime has reported strong sales for a number of AAA 3DS titles. Check it out below.
Luigi’s Mansion has sold over 415,000 units in the US at retail only. So this does not count digital sales, which have increased by 55% over the course of the year. I bought my copy of Luigi’s Mansion digitally, so I know a lot of other people did to.
Star Fox 64 had a significant increase of sales due to digital distribution. 20% of sales came from digital sales in 2013 according to Nintendo’s VP executive Scott Moffitt.
The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D also saw 20% of it’s sales come from the eShop digitally in 2013.
And probably my favorite news of this bunch, Fire Emblem Awakening DLC has been downloaded by more than 50% of the people who purchased the game. Nintendo has a sound strategy with Fire Emblem Awakening in America. It’s good to hear people are enjoying the game and snapping up the DLC.
What do you guys think about this news? Is Nintendo still doomed?
