According to a report on Bloomberg, analysts expect 3DS sales to hit 16 percent below Nintendo’s projected target of 16 million units this year. The four analysts surveyed predicted the percentage, despite the recent cut in retail cost for the handheld, with Wedbush Securities expecting 10 million units for the low end, and Tokyo-based Macquarie expecting units sales to hit around the 14.5 million mark. Stock in the firm fell this morning by 5 percent following its pre-TGS conference, where it announced Monster Hunter 4 for 3DS, its second circle pad peripheral, and a delay for Kid Icarus.
