Nintendo’s Q3 financials reveal Wii U hardware sales are up and amiibo are selling exceptionally well.
As of December 31, 2015, 12.6 million Wii U units have been sold, an increase from Q2’s total of 10.73 million. The uptick in hardware sales could be attributed to strong numbers from Splatoon, which has sold 4.06 million since it launched last May. Super Mario Maker has sold 3.34 million units since its release last September.
Nintendo has also reported 20.5 million amiibo figures have been sold, as well as 21.5 million amiibo cards. Sales figures of amiibo were not reported in Q2 but sales were considered “robust”.
