The 3DS has set a new high for handheld launch sales.
A representative from Nintendo has confirmed that the Nintendo 3DS broke sales records when it launched this past Sunday. Although no specific figures were revealed, the representative stated "U.S. day-one sales numbers for Nintendo 3DS were the highest of any Nintendo hand-held system in our history".
They further noted that "Nintendo worked hard to get as much product as possible to retailers on day one to meet demand, and we will continue with these efforts moving forward."
The sales figures will be released on April 14 when the NPD releases their monthly report.
