Nintendo has expressed hope that sales of its 3DS console are back on track after reaching 6.68 million units at the end of September.
Although the figure is below the company's expectations, it is ahead of the data for the device's predecessor the DS during the same period, reports MCV.
Sales of the 3DS, which allows users to experience an innovative way of playing new and exciting games, increased during August as a result of a substantial price cut.
Nintendo has also forecast strong sales during the festive period, with the reduced cost and an improved software line-up expected to attract customers.
This comes after the Japanese technology firm announced the launch of a new coral pink 3DS console, created to mark the upcoming release of Nintendogs + Cats.
Set to hit stores on November 18th, the new title will see the portable pooch accompanied by an adorable female friend to play with.
