Nintendo has just announced its latest financial report and the Wii U is selling comfortably, although not as high as the 3DS console.

As of December 31st, 2014, total hardware sales for the Wii U and 3DS have been impressive. Nintendo has managed to sell over 9.2 million units of the Wii U so far. The 3DS has sold over 50.41 million units. This includes all iterations of the 3DS console family.

Software sales for the Wii U and 3DS have also been great. Wii U software sales are at 52.87 million units right now. The 3DS has sold an astounding 215.96 million games since it came out a few years ago.

3DS games sold very well last year with Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire leading the way. Those two games collectively sold 9.35 million units. Super Smash Bros. on 3DS did well too selling 6.19 million units.

Some of Wii U’s big first party games sold quite well too. The best selling Wii U game released last year was Mario Kart 8. Mario Kart 8 sold 4.77 million units worldwide. Super Smash Bros. Wii U sold 3.39 million units worldwide last year. An impressive figure since the game just came out in late November.

Nintendo is hoping its great 2014 can continue in 2015.
