MCV has reported that several UK retailers have seen an increase in 3DS sales with some stores selling out.
The metallic red Nintendo 3DS unit has sold out completely with other colors in very “short supply”.
The reason for the spike in popularity of the system has been because of the release of Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land. The other reason is the obvious price drop the 3DS received a few months ago.
Earlier in the year, 3DS sales were lower than Nintendo anticipated but it looks like it will prove to be popular this holiday season since the PS Vita won’t be released until February next year.
