Nintendo Co. said Thursday it has sold about 13 million of its Nintendo DS handheld game systems worldwide, updating figures released two days earlier.

The company said Thursday that the new figures include updated tallies from Europe, where Nintendo has sold 3.5 million of the devices since its launch in March. Perrin Kaplan, vice president for marketing at Nintendo’s U.S. headquarters, had previously said the company had sold 10 million Nintendo DS systems, including about 1 million in Europe.

The Japanese gaming company had sold about 4 million Nintendo DS units in North America and more than 5 million in Japan since the game system’s U.S. launch in November of 2004.
