Nintendo Co. this week said the Wii sold nearly 95,000 units in June at U.S. retail according to data by NPD Group Inc.

The hardware ranked several third-party titles in the top ten, including Warner Bros. Interactive Inc.’s LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes.

Nintendo in Apr. recorded a $460 million loss for the fiscal year amid lower-than-expected sales of the Nintendo 3DS handheld and the Wii console.

In the year it sold 9.8 million Wii consoles, down from an estimate of 13 million.

The Wii holds a global install base of 51 million units.

Nintendo will release Wii U, the successor the Wii hardware, in 2012.
