11.61 million copies globally top first-party sales

Pokemon X and Y was by far Nintendo's best-selling first-party game in the nine months ending December 31.

In a list of global software sales for the first three quarters of the firm's fiscal year 2014 (April - December), it revealed Pokemon X and Y (combined) sales of 11.61 million.


That significantly outpaces its second highest-selling game Animal Crossing: New Leaf, which hit 3.52 million, and third-place title Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon at 2.57 million during the same nine-month period.

A single Wii game was listed - Mario Kart Wii - which still managed to sell 1 million copies in the period, bringing total lifetime sales up to 35.26 million copies.
