Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal and Attack on Titan for western release please!

But it's mainly because of Pokemon XY that the sales grew that way.

Animal crossing earlier in the year and a brand new Zelda game didn't hurt things either.

This totally happened because I splurged on 3DS games last year.

No, in all seriousness, with franchises such as Zelda, Pokemon, Animal Crossing, Professor Layton, Fire Emblem and Ace Attorney all coming out last year, this was bound to happen.

Personally, I cannot wait for Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney and, obviously, Super Smash Bros. Quite excited for Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth also.

Another Pokémon title and Smash 4 (if this year) will certainly also sell well.

Looking forward to those (if) along with Kirby 3D. Not sure if I wanna get Yoshi's New Island quite yet. Probably will in the long run, though.

The fact of the matter is 2013 was simply an umbelievably strong year for the 3DS in terms of software releases. Not just Pokemon and Zelda but also Fire Emblem and Luigi's Mansion - not to mention Animal Crossing which was still hanging on to a spot in the top 40 charts at year's end despite coming out in June or whatever it was.

I don't see Nintendo topping 2013 on the 3DS for a long while, personally. It was just an amazing year for software.

Pokemon finally got me to buy a 3DS as I was waiting for the thing to get enough games that I was interested in, I'm sure with the ton of amazing games that released this year many others thought the same thing

The Zelda 3DSXL edition was the kicker that got me down the shops.

This pretty much confirms that the 3DS sold at least one million in December, in America alone, as 3DS sales in America last month was close to 10.5 million.

Although it's no where near DS sales(in terms of hardware and especially in software) , it's amazing that Nintendo has sold this much considering the impact of the mobile market. I wouldn't call it a powerhouse yet. Let's see how they'll do in 2014 before saying that.

I saw a fire emblem, I bought a 3DS and that sums it up.

Everything else is just bonuses for me.

What about Island Tour?
SMT IV could be a mention too? I thought that game was decent. It doesn't seem like that a lot of people bought it.
