We’ve finally got the Japanese sales charts in thanks to sales tracker, Media Create. Sales of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate on the Nintendo 3DS remain strong and keeps it firmly in the number one position. Hardware sales remain dire as the Wii U only managed to sell 4K units despite the release of LEGO: The Movie which entered into the charts at number nine on the platform. Here’s the best-selling games.

No one’s gonna complain about this list because it’s filled with Nintendo games. But every time the UK or US charts get shown: “Oh, they have bad taste! Those guys play terrible games!”
Variety is what many people have a problem with in terms of the U,K charts, it is always fiilled with mainly FPS and Sports games…
Aka, casual garbage for folks with lower IQs who can’t tell they’re the same shit as last year’s games.
I like the fact you did not mentioned the USA chart in your response (which 90% the same as UK).
It’s not just UK. Germany, france, italy, spain, holland, swedeen, danmark have a similar chart. I don’t know if in Australia/new zeland or south America it’s the same but just wanted to say IT’S NOT JUST UK and I don’t hear people like you slagging other countries.
Finally it clear you don’t live or born in UK so why not showing us the chart of your country so we can compare.
FYI: the guy from my nintendo news are UK base from what I can gather hence why you have the weekly UK chart.
In conclusion: every country has bad taste ;)
that’s your opinion and I respect that :-). Me I just saying the charts are similar in Europe and US. UK charts reflect what you can find in other countries :-)
What fact? The only fact here is that you can’t read. -_- he said UK or US (USA) (United States)
geez I can’t read….???? ok here his comment: “Variety is what many people have a problem with in terms of the U,K charts, it is always fiilled with mainly FPS and Sports games…”
Now U,K is a typo and it means United Kingdom. So now read carefully and tell me where he mentioned US or USA in his answer.
And even you are not sure: “he said UK or US (USA) (United States) ” it either UK OR US mate but the let me give you a clue, the give away is U,K… so my point in his reply he mentioned UK only…. I hope you are not English/American speaker cause that will be a shame.
Good games rarely if ever wind up in the sales charts. Japan is certainly no exception.
Trolling attempt 3/10.
Don’t even try to damage control. Because you were one of those people. Mr smiley face guy. Lol.
And you’re Mr. lol, mr. lmao, mr. facepalm…and the list continues!!!
Wow, I never knew I had so many nicknames! Whoa!
dont forget crab cakes baby
but your official nickname is the flip flopper.
lol, lololol, and GOD are all me. Please don’t confuse me with Grape.
Sorry for not liking a list that just have shooters and sport. My gaming diet is very varied and delicate.
That doesn’t mean you should generalize though! Some of those UK gamers could be an even bigger Nintendo fan than you are! Not all of them care about shooters and sports, you know. And these are sales charts, not top ten lists. The sales of the games don’t just mean that their necessarily the best games to those gamers. I mean, CoD, sports games, and FPS games sell really well over here in the US but I don’t care about any of those games.
ladies and gentlemen kneel before our high priest hollowgrapej THE NEW SASORI
forgive our streetpasses
as we forgive those who streetpass us
Church of HollowGrapeJ?…
yes. but hollowgrapej is so fucking sexy
So…. get lost crab cakes
But that’s true. The games on UK lists DO suck usually.
Im surprised by the sale numbers of New 3DS LL vs New 3DS (regular size). That is a massive difference. I originally believed that it would be closer in sale numbers due to the customization and slightly larger screens of the regular sized edition.
Another 3k closer for Mario Kart 8 to being the best selling Wii U game to date…
Great list. Nintendo has reclaimed Japan. Good games sale consoles in a country like Japan; were gamers speak wit their minds and wallets and not peer pressure. WiiU is okay, Smash and bundles are coming. Xbox one though lol. 3DS is up on everything, not even by a little bit, a whole bunch.
^ This is what I’m talking about right here. A perfect example.
oh hollowgrapej please be my girl. i want to eat you out so bad
Its funny how they talk about brain dead masses that don’t think yet they post shit like this -_- yes STRANGA this is directed at you. Good games are subjective, there is no such thing as better because we all have different opinions.
Smash bros will do nothing for wiiu in japan. They r 3ds people. Small bump fkr about w or 3 weeks and that is it.
4k a week. A year ago it was at 9k to 10k. It is selling half of what it was a year ago.
Got to love fanboys. They always see a bright light and then another Nd another and another
Xbox One – 513 (599)-I didn’t even know it was even possible for Xbox One to decrease any further…XD
It already has and it didn’t even sold past 5 million yet. lol
The psp is giving battle to the 360!
Renintendofy our people now!
Xbox one omg lol
Why don’t you post United states information this detailed? No one gives a fuck about Japan.
I publish the official US NPD figures every month as soon as they are made available. http://mynintendonews.com/?s=npd We get Japanese and UK charts weekly, but US is monthly.
That’s lame. US wants to be secret about their sales. I guess it’s better to save the best for last anyways. XD
According to the untrustworthy vgchartz, Bayonetta 2 sold the most…
I hope it’s true…
no save your self for me baby. :D
Seems like nothing changed since the last one!
hang on in there wii u,smash is here to save the day
hollowgrapej please girl go out with me. ill be your sugar daddy forever. be my queen baby.
the wii u needs a block buster…
there is no block buster comming.
maybe x for the japanese but what is for the west?
nothing… no game in 2015, maybe zelda when its awesome but zelda is no blockbuster.
no gta… no cod… no fifa… no pes, no witcher, no alien… no dark souls, no far cry…, no batman…, no assasins creed, no tomb raider…, no final fantasy etc.
its not like that, that these games are the best of the best, but the are blockbusters.
the peoples want to play these games, not all of them but a few.
not one of these games comes to the u.
no adult game is announced!
the wii u is more a nintendo titles console then the Wii
Maybe most people in Japan already has a Wii U?
if this would be like that, that everybody in japan has a wii u,
then they would have about 200 3DS each person ;-)
Yeah, I got to thinking about that after I posted. Hehe
Can someone, and by someone I mean someone intelligent, explain to me why PS4 is selling “decent” with 10k units sold while the Wii U only sells at 4k? I honestly can’t understand it. And don’t say “because PS4 is the better system.”
Nintendo never advertised the Wii U when it was still new.
That’s why people from around the world still confuse it with a regular Wii.
Siliconera thought that The LEGO Movie Videogame was “the only new [physical video game] release in Japan last week.” THEY ARE WRONG (or probably short-sighted; did Siliconera staff read the new game release posts on NeoGAF that come right after the reveal of the top 31-50 on the Media Create charts?). The only other new Japanese physically released video game that week is Cooking Mama: Watashi no Sweets Shop (3DS) that debuted at the 30th place in the Famitsu charts.
