This week Nintendo announced that the Nintendo Switch sold more units in December than any other video game system, according to the NPD Group, but sales for the Nintendo 3DS were also very impressive.

The 3DS took some of the spotlight this holiday season as well, selling more than 750,000 units in the USA for the month of December, putting the lifetime sales of the 3DS over the 21 million mark in the US - that's a lot of 3DS's!

The December 2017 figures also showed a 27% increase in 3DS sales year-over-year, resulting in the Nintendo 3DS family of systems selling 21 million units life-to-date in the USA alone.
