Nintendo revealed Friday how well the Nintendo 3DS performed in 2013 but says we haven't seen the best of the handheld yet.

The Nintendo 3DS family of portable systems, which also includes Nintendo 3DS XL and Nintendo 2DS, has crossed lifetime hardware sales of more than 11.5 million in the United States alone, according to Nintendo. International 2013 was also a strong year for games with seven titles that achieved Metacritic scores of 85 or better. This led to a 45 percent increase in software sales to more than 16 million games sold between packaged retail and digital download titles.

"Nintendo 3DS is a powerhouse with games and experiences that appeal to all kinds of players," said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "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."

Big titles for the handheld in early 2014 include Bravely Default on Feb. 7, Yoshi's New Island on March 14, Disney Magical World on April 11 with Super Smash Bros., Kirby Triple Deluxe and more to come later.
