Super Mario 3D Land sells 5 million, Zelda: Skyward Sword sells 3 million

It's hard to believe Nintendo isn't profitable when you look at their software sales figures. The holiday season has been quite generous to Nintendo, with worldwide sales of their three most recent AAA games all reaching the millions.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, seen by many as Nintendo's own swansong for the Wii, has sold 3.42 million copies since launch. Super Mario 3D Land, Mario's first foray onto the 3DS, has sold 5.03 million copies since launch.

If the 3DS does outpace year-one sales of the DS, it will become the new "best-selling game platform in US history," according to the publisher.
