More than 16 million Nintendo 3DS games were sold in 2013, marking a 45-percent increase in sales over 2012, Nintendo announced today.

Nintendo also revealed that the 3DS, 3DS XL, and 2DS had a combined 11.5 million unit sales in the United States alone.

“Nintendo 3DS is a powerhouse with games and experiences that appeal to all kinds of players,” Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America executive vice president of sales and marketing, said in the press release. “We’re not slowing down in 2014. With more games featuring fan-favorite franchises on the way, the best days of Nintendo 3DS are still to come.”

Earlier today, Nintendo announced that Yoshi’s New Island—the sixth installment in the Yoshi‘s platformer series—will arrive at retailers and the 3DS eShop on March 14. Bravely Default, the first 3DS release for 2014, launches February 7. A free demo is currently available for download on the 3DS eShop.
