New Nintendo 3DS

We have the newest numbers from Japanese tracking firm Media Create, numbers which tell us which systems and games did the best last week. On the whole, it seems as though the festive season has really gotten Japanese buyers to loosen their purse strings, since on the whole, everything seems to be doing well there. After a year of some depressingly low numbers all around, it’s good to see the Japanese market begin to resemble what it used to be in its heyday.

The 3DS is leading the hardware race, as per usual, with the Wii U having topped the charts on the console side. The PS4 and PS Vita haven’t done that poorly for themselves either, though they’re almost half individually of what the Wii U alone managed, and combined don’t even outsell the 3DS.

On the software side, Monster Hunter and Splatoon continue to impress, and new titles like Fallout 4 and Monster Strike have impressive debuts. You can check out the charts below:

3DS – 147,688
Wii U – 80,301

    Yeah and? So? Japan is irrelevant and their programming skills are way below the Americans and Europeans and it doesn’t change the fact that the 3DS is just some underpowered and overpriced piece of junk with a bunch of kid games, That quite honestly suck.

    • Mario

      20 million 3DS – the definition of irreverence
      Yokai Watch, Monster Hunter – irrelevant franchises that happen to sell millions

      Stay salty guest
