Sales data from the Xbox One, A Link Between Worlds, Super Mario 3D World, and Mario Party: Island Tour launch are in for their “first week” on the market, though the sales data only really counts one day of sales given the data is from the week that ended on the 23rd. That means that A Link Between Worlds had a pretty good launch, moving 294,551 units in the United States along with 119,487 units in Europe. Super Mario 3D World understandably had a smaller debut given the smaller install base of the Wii U compared to the 3DS. The Wii U also had its best week of sales in a while, and we finally can see the exact breakdown of how the Xbox One launch sales fared.
Long story short, Xbox One had a great launch day, and
Zelda performed decently well for one day on the market. Oh, and the 3DS is still raking the sales ship across all territories. Sadly, the Wii U’s bump in sales still couldn’t outpace the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360. The next sales update should be really telling for holiday sales in North America, since it will include Black Friday.
