This is a fan project, like the Lord Inquisitor was. GW has absolutely nothing to do with it!

3DS Sells Over 15 Million Units
12 June, 2015

The New Nintendo 3DS pushed up handheld hardware sales by 50%, but it still trails behind the previous handheld machines Nintendo released. Combined, all of Nintendo’s 3DS has sold 15 million units in the US alone.

The New 3DS, 3DS XL, 3DS, and the 2DS combined have sold 15 million units in the United States to this day. Thanks to the New 3DS, 3DS sales have been snowballing this year. Nintendo said that the 3DS line will be the eighth Nintendo system to reach 15 million sales in the US.

Even with this success, the 3DS is still following behind the sales of previous handheld Nintendo hardware. The DS sold 29.9 million units in over 10 years, making it the best selling out of all Nintendo platforms. The Game Boy Advance moved 41.6 million units over 7 years and the original Nintendo Game Boy had 44 million units sold in 5 years.

While crossing 15 million units is certainly a significant milestone, we are equally excited about the new momentum we’ve created in 2015 thanks to new hardware and an unrivaled library of software. With more great games on the way and a hardware system for every type of gamer, 2015 is shaping up to be one of the stronger years yet for Nintendo 3DS in the United States.
