Nintendo have also been keen to highlight the success of the New 3DS XL, saying that
“The New Nintendo 3DS XL system continues to inject growth into Nintendo’s hand-held business, and the momentum created for Wii U in 2014 has carried over into 2015. Take these two elements, add in fun, exclusive titles starring some of the biggest names in gaming, and overall sales of Nintendo hardware systems so far in 2015 have increased by nearly 60 percent over sales during the same time frame in 2014. Total hardware sales in 2015 have increased by nearly 80 percent over sales during the first three months of 2014.
