Now, Nintendo has announced that sales for the Nintendo DS have reached the 7 million unit mark in Europe. Several key titles for the dual-screen portable also have enjoyed strong sales, including Nintendogs (4 million copies) and Mario Kart DS (1.5 million copies). Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training, Animal Crossing: Wild World, New Super Mario Brothers, and Super Mario 64 have all topped 1 million in Europe, as well.
"We are delighted by the success of the Nintendo DS and DS Lite and especially pleased to see that we have exceeded the one million mark with games that appeal to both non-gamers and traditional gamers," said Laurent Fischer, Nintendo's European marketing director, in a statement. "Nintendo is proud of its role in expanding the gaming market and we hope to continue this success with the launch of Wii in Europe in December."
