  1. That’s some great sell for Devil May Cry 5, as expected.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Splatoon 2 are killing it. Looking forward to them hitting the 3 million mark.

    And surprisingly, we don’t hear so much noise from Minecraft yet its sales performance is still alive.

  2. Place your bets to how long Kirby will stay on the charts! So, far every 3DS game released the last 2 years has only lasted 2 to 3 weeks before no longer placing.

  3. Now that I’ve beaten the game, I can see why Kingdom Hearts III dropped off the top 10 charts as quick as it did. I give the game a 7/10 myself. Lost a point for not having Oathkeeper & Oblivion as keyblades, lost a point for being mostly a Disney game with a bit of KH sprinkled in, & lost a point for not having any god damn Final Fantasy characters. Nomura better not be trying to move away from that aspect of the first 3 games because one of the reasons I’m sure a lot of people loved the franchise was the crossover between Disney & Final Fantasy characters. Take away the Final Fantasy characters & you risk losing half of the fanbase.

    1. Nomura: “I didn’t add Final Fantasy characters because I didn’t want them to distract people from the story.” Don’t you mean you didn’t add them because you didn’t want them to take attention away from the Disney characters? Thus winning some points with Disney by *censor* them off?
