The March 2015 NPD results were reported on Thursday. Nintendo neglected to share hardware sales, but we do have a couple of very close estimates. The family of 3DS systems sold roughly 260,000 – 270,000 units while Wii U moved about 80,000 – 85,000 units.

Aside from hardware sales, we have data for two 3DS titles that debuted in North America last month. Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. sold just 31,000 units, based on a figure provided by reliable NPD leaker “creamsugar”. Fossil Fighters: Frontier also launched last month and managed to sell roughly 35,000 copies.

That’s not all on the NPD front, as cremsugar shared a few lifetime U.S. sales figures for Wii U titles as well. Those are as follows:

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker – roughly 326,000 units
ZombiU – roughly 204,000 units
Bayonetta 2 – roughly 157,000 units
The Wonderful 101 – roughly 104,000 units

We’re still waiting on the March 2015 NPD chart, but Nintendo has already delivered its response for the month.

Several statistics were highlighted in the new press release. According to the company, sales for Nintendo hardware systems thus far in 2015 “have increased by nearly 60 percent over sales during the same time frame in 2014.”

Other than that, we know that Mario Party 10 sold close to 290,000 copies in its first two weeks on the U.S. market, cumulative Smash Bros. Wii U and Mario Kart 8 sales are at 1.6 million and 1.9 million units respectively, and more.

Head past the break for today’s full announcement and sales data.

Nintendo said in its NPD response earlier this week that thus far in 2015, Wii U hardware sales are up by more than 20 percent over sales in the same period last year. But how many units were actually moved in the U.S. last month? It’s currently estimated that sales fell somewhere between 94,000 and 96,000 units or so.

That’s a bit better than January, in which Wii U sales came in at around 64,000 units. It’s also slightly higher than last February’s figure of 82,500 units.

Kirby and the Rainbow Curse’s debut sales in the U.S. are in. Last month, the game sold 52,000 copies, according to reliable NPD leaker “creamsugar”. It should be noted that because Kirby and the Rainbow Curse launched towards the end of February, that figure only accounts for about a week of sales.

The only other piece of Kirby and the Rainbow Curse sales data comes from Japan. First week sales for the game (as revealed by Media Create a few weeks ago) came in at 32,000 units. Total units sold should be at around 60,000 units at this point.

Nintendo has followed up on this month’s NPD report with a bunch of sales figures.

In terms of what we haven’t already reported, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate managed to sell 290,000 copies in its first month. Super Smash Bros. for Wii U sales have now surpassed 1.5 million, while amiibo figures are up to 3.5 million.

Read on below for Nintendo’s full response to this month’s NPD report.

Nintendo has shared a notable stat from this month’s NPD report. According to the company, all versions of the 3DS sold a combined 395,000 units in the U.S. last month.

A Nintendo spokesperson told GamesBeat, “The great majority of these sales were New Nintendo 3DS XL systems, which sold 130 percent more units in its initial frame than Nintendo 3DS XL did when it launched on Aug. 19, 2012.”

Gaming hardware sales for the industry were up $378.2 million for a 10 percent bump year-over-year. The launch of the New 3DS XL provided a large contribution to that figure.

Regarding Wii U, Nintendo says that “hardware sales have increased by more than 20 percent” thus far in 2015 compared to the same period in 2014.
