Nintendo has reported the November sales figures of its two biggest games of the holiday season and the new amiibo figurines. Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire came up huge for Nintendo as always shipping out a total of 1.5 million copies between both versions.
Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U also clocked in at an impressive 710,000 units, enough to land it on the number three spot on the NPD’s sales list after Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Grand Theft Auto V. Nintendo also reports that the new amiibo figurines have also sold a similar total amount with Link surprisingly being the most popular followed by Mario and Pikachu.
Both Super Smash Bros. and the latest Pokemon generation were released on the same day, Nov. 21st, making these figures represent the first 10 days on the market.
Nintendo has also reported that Super Smash Bros. for the 3DS is also chugging along nicely with sales standing at 1.5 million, and the Wii U’s fortunes have increased with a 10 percent rise in sales over the same time period last year.
