Nintendo Announces Healthy Holiday Sales Figures

As everyone looks ahead to the possibilities in store for 2010, Nintendo of America is looking to extend the glow of the holidays with some fresh December sales information. The following items were announced by Nintendo President Satoru Iwata in Japan:

* Although official U.S. sales data for December and all of 2009 will be announced by the NPD Group on Jan. 14, it appears that U.S. consumers responded enthusiastically to Nintendo’s Wii™ home console in December. Nintendo estimates that December sales in the United States will exceed 3 million units.
* Nintendo estimates that the portable Nintendo DS™ lineup, including the Nintendo DSi™ video game system, set a new all-time calendar-year U.S. sales record for any console or hand-held system.
* Nintendo software also continued to perform well. Although the NPD Group will provide the full sales numbers for each game, Nintendo estimates that lifetime U.S. sales of New Super Mario Bros.™ Wii are approaching 4 million. The game, which is the first Super Mario Bros. game to include simultaneous four-player action, launched in the United States on Nov. 15.

“The millions of people who bought Nintendo hardware during the holidays can look forward to enjoying great games on those systems now and in the future,” said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks for Nintendo DS, and Wii Fit Plus and New Super Mario Bros. Wii are all currently providing Nintendo fans with amazing experiences and fun adventures for the whole family.”

5 January 2010 – As we start a new decade, Nintendo announces that there are now over 40 million* Nintendo DS and 20 million* Wii consoles being played across Europe. In fact, the Nintendo DS family, including Nintendo DS Lite and the latest addition, Nintendo DSi, has not only sold more than any other videogame console in Europe but it has also seen the fastest growth in European video game console history, reaching this sales figure in less than 5 years**.

Wii continues its momentum, becoming the fastest selling home console in Europe by reaching the 20 million milestone in just over three years**.

MAJESCO ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES ‘ATTACK OF THE MOVIES 3D’ FOR WiiTM

Re-live the Greatest Action Movies of All Time in the First 3D Shooter for WiiTM

BRISTOL, UK. The greatest action scenes in cinematic history come to life as Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, today announced Attack of the Movies 3D. The first-ever 3D shooter designed exclusively for Wii™, Attack of the Movies 3D transports players to six fantastic movie-themed worlds where they will battle large alien space cruisers, shoot underwater monsters, join the resistance against the machines and more. Packaged with four pairs of 3D glasses to support four-player multiplayer action, and featuring classic enemies culled from the annals of film history, this inspired 3D shooter jumps right out of your television and into your living room.

Because a translation from Google is being used, not everything is perfectly clear. However, this is well worth reading, as Antoine Seux from Capcom France divulges a bunch of information concerning Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, Monster Hunter 3, hardcore games, the DS, and more.

Capcom on Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles sales…

“As for Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, in absolute figures are not too bad, but it’s not going to lie, they are below what we hoped. After three weeks (the interview was conducted December 23, editor’s note), we are a total of 16,000 units sold. One feels that there is a problem very clear on this style of game on the Wii, where gamers are obviously moved on. There are two more years, Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles had yet had a very very big success on Wii. Here we can see, the customer of this console has turned to something much broader audience. It is a disappointment.”
