• Nintendo has revealed that the 3DS was the best selling video game hardware platform in the United States in May.  The launch of Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D on May 23 and another strong month for Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon helped Nintendo 3DS software sales in stores increase by more than 60 percent over the same time last year.  Nintendo 3DS also had two of the top three best selling software SKUs for the month, with Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D at No. 2 and Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon at No. 3.

    Last week at E3 Nintendo highlighted some of the big titles that will be hitting the 3DS and the Wii U in 2013.  Starting in August and continuing through the end of the year, Wii U will launch one major game a month, including Pikmin 3 (August 4), The Wonderful 101 (September 15), The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD (October), Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze (November) and Super Mario 3D World (December).  Nintendo 3DS will build on its momentum with the successive launches of Mario & Luigi: Dream Team (August 11), Pokemon X and Pokemon Y (October 12), Mario Party for Nintendo 3DS (name not final, November) and The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (November).

    Which title are you looking forward to the most?  Will any of these titles make you purchase a Wii U or a Nintendo 3DS?
