Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 Holds Onto No. 1
« on: May 22, 2010, 12:06:39 PM »
Another slow week in the Japanese charts results in many games staying in the same position as last week, despite some large sales drops.

 As Golden Week concluded last week, game sales in Japan saw quite a large drop, with some games in the top 10 seeing a dip of up to 60%.    


Holding onto the top spot for a third consecutive week was Square Enix¬ís Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2, selling 126,000 copies (down 50%), bringing its total to just over a million. Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker saw a large drop of 55% (63,000), while New Super Mario Bros. Wii dipped to its lowest sales week since it launched back in December (19,000, down 59%).    


Tomodachi Collection, after a resurgence due to Golden Week, saw itself drop to sales of 16,000 (down 52%), while Mario Kart Wii also dipped after its sudden boom during Golden Week (13,000, down 60%). Elsewhere on the chart, Wii Fit Plus hangs out with a couple of PS3 games in the lower end of the top 10, a mere 12,000 units sold.    


Next week should see Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 fall out of the top spot as Super Mario Galaxy 2 is expected to debut at the top. It¬ís difficult to predict how much it¬íll sell, but sales in the 100k range are all but guaranteed.

Did you know that if NSMBW sells as much next week as it did this week, then it will have officially passed the sales of SMB3(according to M-Create) putting it at the 3rd best selling Mario game(behind NSMBDS) in Japan?
