It’s hard to believe Nintendo isn’t profitable when you look at their software sales figures. The holiday season has been quite generous to Nintendo, with worldwide sales of their three most recent AAA games all reaching the millions.

The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, seen by many as Nintendo’s own swansong for the Wii, has sold 3.42 million copies since launch. Super Mario 3D Land, Mario’s first foray onto the 3DS, has sold 5.03 million copies since launch.

3DS had a number of other first-party million-sellers. In spite of launching in December, Mario Kart 7 has already amassed 4.54 million sales. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D has pushed 2.49 million copies.

On the DS, Kirby’s Mass Attack managed to reach 1.01 million in sales. The rest of the heavy-hitters are from the back catalog, including Pokemon Black & White (14.4 million), New Super Mario Bros. (28.7 million), and Mario Kart DS (22.3 million).

Kirby also performed quite well on the Wii, with Kirby’s Return to Dream Land selling 1.21 million copies. Back catalog titles are so performing well on the Wii, including Mario Kart Wii (31.9 million), New Super Mario Bros. Wii (25.4 million), and Super Mario Galaxy (10.4 million).
