Nintendo: 3DS game sales up 45 percent in 2013

More than 16 million 3DS games were sold through retailers and Nintendo's eShop in 2013, an increase of more than 45 percent compared to 2012's sales numbers, according to a Nintendo press release.

The company also announced today that lifetime sales of the 3DS, 3DS XL and 2DS topped 11.5 million in the United States.

"Nintendo 3DS is a powerhouse with games and experiences that appeal to all kinds of players," Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of sales and marketing, said in a prepared statement. "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."

The 2DS was released in North America in October for $129.99.
