In March, Nintendo again defined industry momentum in both home and portable video games sales, according to the independent NPD Group, which monitors retail activity in the video game industry. More than 720,000 WiiTM systems sold in March, representing the highest monthly sales total outside of holiday months (November or December) to date, while Nintendo DSTM also sold through nearly 700,000 systems.

Nintendo also finished with the top-selling U.S. game of March. Super Smash Bros.® Brawl, which launched March 9, came in at No. 1 with 2.7 million units sold.

“Nintendo systems represented 58 percent of all video game hardware sold in March in the United States,” said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “We expect our momentum to continue with big upcoming game launches like Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, Mario Kart Wii and Wii Fit.”

  • Three Wii games finished in the top 10, including Super Smash Bros. Brawl at No. 1, Wii PlayTM at No. 4, and Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock at No. 7.
