Ocarina of Time 3D sells one million

[UPDATE] Ocarina of Time has sold a million, but it's not the first. A Nintendo financial document shows that the 3DS version of Super Street Fighter IV shipped 1 million units, and the combined SKUs of Nintendogs + cats sold 1 million units. Shacknews apologizes for the error.

[ORIGINAL STORY] If any 3DS game was going to crack a million first, it had to be Ocarina of Time 3D. Gamasutra reports that the game has hit 1.08 million unit sales worldwide. 270,000 were in Nintendo's home territory of Japan, while 810,000 were sold in the US and Europe combined.

The company reached 1 million 3DS units sold in Japan last month, making the attach rate somewhere lower than 27% depending on how sales have fared since then. Yesterday's price cut announcement was paired with the news of 830,000 units sold in the US, and Ocarina had a strong debut in Europe with a 20% attach rate at launch.

The 3DS is dropping to $169.99 on August 12, and anyone who purchases and registers on the 3DS eShop before that point will receive 20 downloadable games from the NES and GameBoy Advance eras.

Other standouts for Nintendo were Pokemon Black and White at 1.36 million sold between April and June, and Mario Kart Wii staying strong years after release at 1.22 million units sold in the first quarter.
