It’s probably fairly common knowledge that the Nintendo DS is the second bestselling console of all time (with 154.88 million lifetime sales), only the PlayStation 2 outshone it. However what probably isn’t common knowledge is what games were the bestselling on that platform. Well we have answers for you, just take a look at the chart below, which is in descending order and the number beside each game is the amount of copies it sold.
10: Super Mario 64 DS 11.75 Million
9: Pokémon HeartGold/SoulSilver 11.75 Million
8: Animal Crossing: Wild World 12.12 Million
7: Pokémon Black/White 15.13 Million
6: Brain Age 2: MTiMaD 15.29 Million
5: Pokémon Diamond/Pearl 18.24 Million
4: Brain Age: TYBiMaD 20.14 Million
3: Mario Kart DS 23.18 Million
2: Nintendogs 24.67 Million
1: New Super Mario Bros. 29.73 Million
They’re some impressive sales figures, although it’s hardly shocking that six of the top ten selling games on a Nintendo platform would be either a Pokémon or Mario title.
