Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask and Kid Icarus will pretty soon.

And I still think Paper Mario will pass 1 million.

I've a little surprised Nintendogs +Cats hasn't sold more. The numbers are still great, but notably less than the first installment.

Kid Icarus seems close. Ill be one to get it shortly.

Estelle and Adol... best characters ever! XD

This week, Kingdom Hearts 3D joined the growing list of 3DS million-sellers. It's the eighth title to accomplish this overall, and the second third-party title (after Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, or 3G in Japan).

Most Kingdom Hearts games released globally have achieved at least one million sales, so this is not a particularly impressive feat for the game. Depending on how well its legs carry it, the game should sell at least another 200k in its lifetime but will most likely fall short of 2 million sales, a mark only the two main console games in the series have surpassed. A safe bet for Dream Drop Distance is between 1.4 and 1.7 million lifetime sales, just shy of the ~1.85 million sold by three other portable titles in the series, but not too shabby.

My dark horse: Style Savvy: Trendsetters.

I vote for Kid Icarus.
But wait, you're telling me AC hit 1 million without America?!?!?

didn't already exist

It does.

I wonder how many it will get lifetime? More or less than the DS?


Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

Wasnt KH3D massively overestimated on VGC in the US?
Luigis Mansion will hit the 1million mark next year.And Fire Emblem maybe too.

I think Pokemon: Rumble Blast will also make it to the million sellers list.
