Apparently the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 aren’t the only next-gen consoles flying off the shelf, according to a report today from GameSpot, as Nintendo has announced sales of the Wii U rose 340 percent in November compared to October.

The announcement comes after NPD Group released its industry tracking figures, which confirmed the rapid pace both the Sony and Microsoft machines have sold in its first month since launch.

Not only did Nintendo announce the uptake in Wii U sales, but the publisher has sold more than 215,000 digital and physical copies of Wii U title Super Mario 3D World, which launched on Nov. 22.

“In looking at these results, two things are indisputable: Our hardware is gaining momentum at the exact right time and our software catalog is stronger than ever," Nintendo of America marketing executive Scott Moffitt said.

Nintendo also announced that with the 770,000 3DS units sold in the United States during November, the platform now has eclipsed the 10 million units sold mark in the region. You can read more of that Examiner report by clicking here.
