Nintendo expects to sell 4 million 3DS units at launch… these are the titles that will do it

1 min read


Nintendo are expecting big things from their upcoming 3DS and it would be a brave person to bet against them. The 3DS blew everyone away at E3 and while it is far more expensive than we would like I know that I am still going to be handing over some hard earned cash to get one.

And now Nintendo has come out and stated that they expect 4 million other people to do the same in the first 3 months after launch.

On top of that they expect to sell 15 million games which using my amazing mathematics ability means that they expect every to buy 3.75 games each.

A new console with a strong launch lineup… that’s not possible is it?

Well here are the big titles that jumped out at me for the launch.

  1. Riiiiiiiiiidge Racer 3DS
  2. Splinter Cell 3DS
  3. Metal Gear Solid 3DS
  4. Resident Evil: Mercenaries 3DS
  5. Professor Layton and the Mask of the Miracle for 3DS
  6. Super Street Fighter IV 3DS
  7. Kid Icarus
  8. Mario Kart
  9. Dead or Alive 3D

and then the ones that I don’t like that will sell tons

  • Nintendogs + Cats
  • The Sims 3
  • Starfox 64 3D


So if you are planning on getting a 3DS can you spot 3.75 titles that you just have to own?
