Thanks to the latest leaks from creamsugar – a person who is known for having access to NPD data – we now know how many Wii U consoles were sold in the U.S. during the month of May. Between May 1 and May 30, Nintendo moved roughly 42,500 units. That’s essentially the same amount as Wii U’s performance in April, when the console’s sales came in at 43,000 units.

We also have data for a pair of 3DS titles. First, Puzzle & Dragons Z + Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition sold under 32,000 copies in the U.S. last month. Meanwhile, Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker’s sales came in at under 23,000 units.

In the U.S., amiibo led the way in dollar sales out of all interactive gaming toy offerings during the month of May. It’s the first time since the figures launched that this feat was accomplished.

Thanks to amiibo’s strong performance, interactive gaming toy sales as a whole rose 73 percent in the U.S. last month.

NPD Group’s Liam Callahan said:

“May 2015 was a positive month for video game accessory sales, with dollar sales up 20 per cent. The top 5 accessory types: Interactive Gaming Toys; point cards; gamepads; headsets/headphones; and power supplies, all experienced year-over-year growth. Interactive gaming toy sales experienced stellar growth of 73 per cent in May 2015 as Nintendo’s amiibo accessories led dollar sales for the first time since launch.”

Xenoblade Chronicles 3D debuted on the New 3DS last month as the system’s first “exclusive” game. How did it perform on the market?

Xenoblade Chronicles 3D didn’t make the top ten NPD chart, but Nintendo said it was the fifth best-selling game in the U.S. during April if you do not combine sales for platforms. Thanks to “creamsugar”, who often leaks sales data, it’s also now known that the game sold under 75,000 copies.

All things considered, Xenoblade Chronicles 3D sold fine. The New 3DS has a very small userbase, and Xenoblade is more of a niche game. It’s also a port of a game that’s a few years old.

Thanks to Jake for the tip.

Nintendo did not distribute a response to the April 2015 NPD data yesterday, though the company did share a few figures with GamesBeat. The site was told that, though the first four months of the year, Wii U hardware sales are up 15 percent compared to the same period in 2014.

Unfortunately, that still doesn’t tell us much. But thanks to a chart shared by creamsugar – a person known for leaking NPD data – it’s looking like Wii U sold approximately 43,000 units in the U.S. last month.

Here’s a rough breakdown of the chart pictured above (note: Wii U takes up the position of 10.60 percent share):

Xbox One = 187,000 units
PS4 = 174,730 units
Wii U = 42,890 units

Nintendo hasn’t shared any specific figures about its hardware or games for the month of April in the United States, but GamesBeat was able to obtain a few tidbits from the company.

According to the site’s report:

Through the first four months of 2014, the 3DS’s sales have increased by 65 percent compared to the same four-month period in 2014. For the Wii U, it is up 15 percent in the first four months of 2015 compared to that period in 2014.

GamesBeat also heard from Nintendo that Xenoblade Chronicles 3D was the fifth best-selling game in the U.S. last month if you do not combine sales for platforms.

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

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.
