According to the independent NPD Group, which tracks video game sales in the United States, sales of Nintendo’s Wii reached almost 560, 000 in March, and with the DS also selling like hot cakes, Nintendo systems accounted for 59 percent of all video game hardware sold in March. In terms of software, Super Mario Bros. Wii is still flying off the shelves, as is Wii Fit Plus with Wii Balance Board. Here’s Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing talking about the news:
“Demand for Nintendo fun continues unabated. We’re glad so many people are able to get their hands on our systems as we prepare for the May launches of Super Mario Galaxy 2 for Wii and Picross 3D for our Nintendo DS systems.”Did somebody say Super Mario Galaxy 2? That sounds like a good excuse to post these fantastic new screenshots that Nintendo has just released to the world. Roll on May 23rd!
