The 3DS XL (LL) came out last week in Japan and it’s already moved 193,441 units (eat your heart out PS Vita). Meanwhile New Super Mario Bros. 2 moved 430,185 units. All of this is impressive, but what’s even more impressive is that these sales are only from a 2 day period. Let me repeat that — TWO DAYS! Yes, since both items were released on Saturday these figures aren’t form a full week.
It looks like Nintendo still has a death-grip on the Japanese gaming market. The 3DS XL and New Super Mario Bros. 2 comes stateside on August 18. Tell us — are you picking up the new 3DS?
