May NPD Gives Nintendo Reason to Boast (And So They Do!)

With US sales figures in for the month of May, one could figure that Nintendo has plenty to brag about. One would be correct, because that’s exactly what they’ve done.

The company had seven titles – five on the Wii and two for DS – on the top ten chart. Wii Fit and Mario Kart Wii in particular did very well, selling a combined 1475.1K over the period. Nintendo’s VP of Sales & Marketing Cammie Dunaway has noted that “The Wii Wheel and Wii Balance Board accessories make game play fun for new gamers while presenting new challenges for those who have been playing a long time.”

“The diversity of the seven Nintendo games represented in NPD’s top 10 for May demonstrates how Nintendo has something for everyone.” As an owner of the Wii I can safely say that I haven’t cashed in on Kart or Wii Fit just yet. Too many Xbox 360 games to beat right now, I suppose!
