Nintendo 3DS: More Than 19 Million Units Sold Worldwide

Nintendo has announced they have sold more than 19 million Nintendo 3DS consoles worldwide as of the end of June 2012. The video game giant also revealed that since the manufacturing costs for the 3DS have finally gone down, they're no longer incurring a loss from each unit sold.

In the wake of losing almost a billion dollars last year, this must be welcome news for Nintendo, whose hopes for the future are looking up. The company is launching the super-sized Nintendo 3DS XL on August 19, the same day that New Super Mario Bros. 2 will be released both as retail and digital versions, a first for Nintendo.

With paid DLC on the way, confirmed to be development for New Super Mario Bros. 2 and Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, as well as a strong release line-up including games like Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance and Monster Hunter 4, the Nintendo 3DS is on pace to continue enjoying this success.

Let us know if you ever bought a Nintendo 3DS, and which games you're looking forward to playing on the system this fall.
