According to Famitsu, Nintendo sold 193,441 3DS XL units since its release on July 28th.
Plus, New Super Mario Bros. 2, which was released along the new handheld, moved an impressive 430,185 units during its first two days of sale (NOT including the download version).

The 3DS XL launches in North America on August 19, 2012.Chart-Track doesn't give out hardware numbers, but I understand XL shifted a figure a little shy of five figures, outselling the original 3DS (whose total is based on seven days' data) by a factor of just over 2:1. At the same time, old 3DS was down slightly on its previous week.
As for software, sales were up 11 per cent for the week overall (following a 31 percent leap the previous week, probably inspired by the launch of Kingdom Hearts 3D). For specific titles, Mario Kart 7 jumped by 45 per cent, up to 13th in the all-formats chart, with Super Mario 3D Land up 37 per cent to 20th and Mario & Sonic's London Olympics caper predictably up 25 per cent into the bronze medal position.
