Nintendo 3DS sales up 80% year-over-year on Pokemon Go success
Nintendo had a very good month in mobile gaming, according to NPD Group’s latest data. The 3DS won in both hardware and software sales for the analyst firm’s latest tracker report, with the 3DS and its family of systems (including New 3DS, 3DS XL and 2DS devices) up 80 percent for July this year versus July 2015. Pokémon Omega Red and Alpha Sapphire, the latest console titles in the franchise, were also up over 80 percent year-over-year. The halo effect doesn’t stop at the latest and greatest in Pokémon console games, however: Sales of Pokémon X and Y, which were first released in October 2013, were up a huge 200 percent compared to their sales in July of last year.
