The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D joins 3DS million unit sold club in United States

The Legends of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D has become the third Nintendo 3DS title to sell more than one million units in the United States.

By achieving this new milestone, The Legends of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D joins the one million member club, joining Super Mario 3D Land (2.1 million units sold life to date) and Mario Kart 7 (1.75 million units sold life to date).

These numbers come via the NPD Group which tracks video game sales within the United States. The NPD also reported that two of the top five and nine of the top 25 best-selling titles play on Nintendo platforms.

Looking forward, the 3DS looks to improve upon software sales with the release of New Super Mario Bros. 2 on August 19, and a holiday lineup that sees the Luigi's Mansion and Paper Mario franchises make their handheld debuts.

The release of New Super Mario Bros. 2 will coincide with the launch of a brand new 3DS XL system which boasts larger screens and a better battery life. The current 3DS has sold over 5 million units in the United States alone.
