3DS: the Best-Selling Platform in May

Despite all of the discussions on next-gen consoles, the Nintendo 3DS soars to the top in sales number for the month of May in the U.S.

According to the NPD Group, software sales for physical copies also surpassed last year’s number by over 60 percent.

This is likely due to the release of Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D and another strong month of sales for Luigi’s Mansion: Dark MoonDonkey Kong was charted at number two while Luigi’s Mansion took the third spot for best-selling software for May.
