We already know that Super Smash Bros. on 3DS has been a success for Nintendo, offered over 2.8 million worldwide given a launch, though according to a Sep NPD report, a diversion also helped boost 3DS sales by 55 percent month-ove-month in a US.

Super Smash Bros. on 3DS sole over 705,000 copies with usually dual days of information for a Sep NPD, creation it a “No. 4 best-selling program SKU for a month” according to Nintendo. And that’s also factoring in digital sales, that Nintendo says accounted for 135,000 sales.

Wii U sales were also bolstered month-on-month with an boost of “nearly 50 percent over sales in August.” Nintendo attributes a boost to clever performances from Hyrule Warriors and Mario Kart 8. Hyrule Warriors has sole over 190,000 copies, and it would have done a NPD tip 10 in a US if rankings were formed on an particular SKU basis. And Mario Kart 8 “sold scarcely 60,000 sum units in a fifth month on a market, bringing a lifetime sum in a U.S. to scarcely 1.2 million sum units.”

Nintendo will expected have a clever finish to a year as good with both a Wii U chronicle of Super Smash Bros. and Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire due out in November.
