    NPD: The 3DS Has Had Its Best January Sales Since 2013

    There is one more highlight of this month’s NPD report that may interest you. Nintendo’s hardware had a very successful month, according to the NPD, but it’s not just the Switch that performed well. The 3DS had a strong December, but its January turned out to be even better. January 2018 was the best January that the 3DS has had, “in terms of consoles sold”, since 2013. The 3DS also saw its best January hardware dollar sales since January 2014.


    What makes the news even more strange is that January was a quiet month for the console, largely due to Nintendo focusing on the Switch. It didn’t see any titles in the NPD Top 20 list for January, either. It seems that some games on the 3DS that have been out for a while, including Mario Kart 7 and Pokemon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon, are still giving the handheld some life. The 3DS sales chart had Pokemon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon at #1 and #2, respectively, and Mario Kart 7 was at #3.

    Yeah, but doesn't January usually suck for sales? The more accurate way to put it would be that 3DS sales sucked the least since 2013.
