Perhaps lost in the launches of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, Nintendo announced that lifetime sales of its 3DS platform have eclipsed more than 10 million units sold in North America, according to a report today from Games Industry.

With some 770,000 units sold during November, Nintendo announced, the 3DS now has a lifetime sales total of 10.5 million in the region.

Nintendo also plugged its uptake in the recently released 3DS title Pokemon X & Y, both selling more than 225,000 combined physical and digital copies, bringing lifetime sales to 2.35 million units sold.

More than 280,000 copies of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, launched last month, were sold in November.

The news coincides with Nintendo’s announcement that sales of the Wii U console rose by 340 percent from October to November while also selling more than 215,000 copies of Wii U title Super Mario 3D World in the month.
