Majora’s Mask 3D, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and the New Nintendo 3DS have been out in the UK for over a week now and they seem to be seeing great commercial success in the UK markets. Nintendo UK director of marketing Shelly Pierce commented on the sales:
“We’re really pleased with how Majora’s Mask 3D and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate have performed. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate has significantly outperformed its predecessor and The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D has debuted at the top spot in the individual format chart. We’ve also seen a strong start for the New 3DS and we’re looking forward to building this momentum.”
MCV notes that the launch of New 3DS caused the UK hardware market to rise 57 per cent week-on-week.
