Mario 3DS games quickly overtook launch titles

Nintendo recently released its financial figures, along with software charts that span the 2011 calendar year.

Star Fox 64 3D coming September 9

Get ready to man your Arwings and curse that incompetent pilot Slippy Toad, because Nintendo has announced the release date for Star Fox 64 3D.
