Nintendo has announced that in the nine month period ended December 31, 2009, it launched three titles which each went on to achieve sales of over 10 million units during the period.

These heavy hitters are New Super Mario Bros Wii with 10.55 million units, Wii Fit Plus with 10.16 million units and Wii Sports Resort with 13.58 million units.

The platform holder added: "These strong software titles, coupled with the price reduction on Wii hardware and other factors, combined to drive sales of Wii hardware strongly in the holiday season. Worldwide sales of Wii hardware were 17.05 million units and worldwide sales of Wii software were 156.64 million units in the first nine months of this fiscal year."

While the DS didn't achieve any 10 million plus sellers, notable hits included Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver which notched up 3.74 million sales in Japan, and The Legend of Zelda: Sprit Tracks which shifted 2.45 million copies worldwide in December.
