Japan: Nintendo 3DS Sells 28K And Wii U Sells 11K

This week’s Media Create video game sales charts are now in from Japan. Yokai Watch: Busters for the Nintendo 3DS still continues to dominate the chart, but what is most impressive is the performance of Nintendo’s colourful shooter, Splatoon. The game continues to keep the Wii U afloat and won’t budge from the top five. Nintendo will clearly be happy with the worldwide sales of the title which we found out today currently stands at 1.62 million units. Anyway, here’s the best-selling software and hardware in Japan.

  1. >>>11,000 units a week seems to be the new standard now compared to the 6000 units before>>>

    1. The new law was administered earlier this year Tetrarch. Seems the empire is pushing for more soldiers in preparation for something.

      1. >>>Of course, our new weapon of war, Codename NX shall take us to victory again>>>

      2. Welcome back, Cereza. You’ve missed a lot between now & Nintendo’s terrible Nintendo E3 Digital Event on this site.

        1. It’s good to be back Xeno Ridley. I’ve been keeping tabs of the news on my phone, but constantly signing in and out was really cumbersome. I’ve got a laptop now that I’ve rigged to act like a desktop PC.

  2. Everytime I’m online with Splatoon it’s pretty much all Japanese players.

    1. Weird I usually play with mostly non-Japanese players, but sometimes I do play with Japanese players.

    1. >>>Keep believing in such fairytales Sonyan, your empire as a whole is almost at the brink of destruction and I’ll be there laughing at your dead corpses once it all crashes down>>>

      1. Let the casuals have their moment in the sun. They can talk all they want, but us real gamers will still be enjoying the best quality and variety of games.

      2. Us Sonyans will never surrender to the likes of you nintendroids. Our glorious master Stalin will lead us to victory over these ninclowns! And when our empire dominates the Galaxy, we’ll go further and take down those dirty, malfunctioning xbots. It’s not too late to join the dark side friend.

        1. >>>Stalin? Such primitive master you slaves have then, no wonder your empire is dying>>>

        2. >>>I am the darkside, darkness is eternal, it’s not evil nor good, you light worshippers need to be destroyed for the only truth>>>

          1. Looks like your powers of the darkness are being tested by some earthly event called “E3″…we shall see if you prevail optim-I mean Metroid prime, we shall see…

              1. That’s what every droid says. Only the true darkness is destined to rule over all empires!

                1. >>>Your uselessness has already been confirmed, your inevitable demise is at hand>>>

                  1. We, Sonyans, look at your secret weapon the NX as nothing more than dirty toilet paper floating in the wind. It seems you have great need of upgrading your, what do the petty earthlings call it, “hardcore gamer appeal” or you can kiss your robot dreams of damaging our forces goodbye. In this game of chess, this clash of empires…we shall succeed and you shall fail.

                    1. >>>We created you, we will take back what’s ours>>>

                      >>>And hopefully during your empire’s worst situation ever>>>

          2. You type way to much garbage. It’s not even fun making fun of it anymore, it’s just weak and pathetic now. : (

        3. Nintendo is the iron fist. They show no mercy and take no prisinors. Not even for their own kind. Wherever you stand, friend or foe, you will experience the wrath.

  3. Why in all the pictures of the girl inklings do they stand like they haven’t pee’d in weeks?

  4. #RipWiiU2015#

    Seems Iwata followed the path of Wii U this year,if he was CEO of PlayStation he would still be alive,laughing his way to the bank
