Nintendo's 2009 Software Sales: The Breakdown

As you've seen, Nintendo's 2009 fiscal year results are in. Pushing on from the cash money, let's now take a look at the games: which ones sold, how many they sold, that sort of thing.

WARNING: these numbers will make every "1 million sold!" proclamation from other publishers seem tame by comparison.

The following sales figures are just for the past fiscal year, so they're only counting sales made from April 1, 2008 to March 31 2009. Numbers in (brackets), where indicated, are lifetime sales figures.

Nintendo DS:

Pokemon Platinum - 3.75 million Kirby Super Star Ultra - 2.36 million Brain Training 1 & 2 - 7.31 million combined (31.12 million)

Nintendo Wii:

Wii Fit - 16.37 million (18.22 million) Mario Kart - 15.4 million Animal Crossing: City Folk - 3.38 million Wii Music - 2.65 million

Yes, Wii music sold 2.65 million.


    You could put the word Nintendo on a weighing scale and people would eat it up.. oh wait they already did that.

    15.4 million for mario kart is insane! im curious as to how well the other mario kart games sold now...
