3DS sales in Japan jump past 4m

And it just keeps going; Nintendo’s 3DS has crossed the 4 million sales mark in homeland Japan, according to the latest Enterbrain figures. Over 4.1 million units were said to have been sold as of mid-December, 11 months after its February 2011 launch.

The handheld was reported to have been closing in on the 3 million units sold mark just earlier in the month. Nintendo’s recovering from the shoddy launch quite nicely then.

North American sales aren’t too shabby either, having┬áreached 1.65 million in November.
