Japan: Nintendo 3DS Sells 21K And Wii U Sells 6K

This week’s Japanese charts have arrived courtesy of Media Create, and the top 3 spots are all new positions. Two Nintendo 3DS titles have taken up 2 of the top 3 spots, perhaps surprisingly, with Girls Mode 3: Kirakira Code taking the first slot and Future Card Buddy Fight: Yuujou no Bakunetsu Fight taking third. PlayStation is still dominating the chart between the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita and only two Wii U titles are present with Mario Party 10 being knocked down to seventh. In hardware sales, the Nintendo 3DS has dropped 5,000 units since last week and the Wii U remains pretty steady at 6,000. But here are the charts for you to take a look at, and see what you think!

      1. Or Style Boutique if you’re in Europe. I swear it’s not as awful as it sounds. I mean Nintendo made it, it’s pretty good.

  1. 6,000 people every week in Japan. Someone explain this to me. Do 6,000 Nintendo employees buy a Wii U? How does 6k random people decide to buy a Wii U every week ?

    1. The 200 or so Xboxes are probably bought by foreigners living in Japan. They wouldn’t buy that shit. Of course the Wii U does better, even the Vita does pretty good.

  2. Now, can you please localize Style Savvy 3? My sister loved the first few games and she would be disappointed if this one wasn’t brought to the West.

    1. I see more Japanese on their phone. Phone games are cheaper than handheld games and sometimes phone games are free. They probably don’t see a reason to buy handheld anymore.
