Dragon Quest X: Legend of the Ancient Dragon Online also debuts.
It’s been a rather interesting week for the Wii U and New 3DS in Japan. According to the latest Media Create Charts, not only did the Wii U sell roughly 3 times the number of units the previous week as compared to the week before but the eagerly awaited Xenoblade Chronicles X was in fact not the top selling game across all platforms.
Instead, that honour went to Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition which raked in 179,926 units in its first week. Dragon Quest X: Legend of the Ancient Dragon Online came in second with 98,923 units, this too being its debut week. Meanwhile, Xenoblade Chronicles X only managed to sell 85,586 units in its opening week. Perhaps it will pick up over time?
Nintendo has been doing pretty good regardless. Bravely Second: End Layer managed to sell 20,195 units the past week with 120,242 units over its lifetime. The PlayStation Vita had a number of titles in the top ten including Minecraft: PS Vita Edition (which sold 16,166 units the past week and totaled 125,951 units in its lifetime). The handheld surprisingly outsold the New Nintendo 3DS XL but barely with 17,748 units versus 17,062 units respectively.
