This Week In Sales: Mario Kart 7 And Monster Hunter 3G Stand Strong

By Ishaan . January 5, 2012 . 4:01pm

Period: The week of December 26th (2011) – January 1st (2012)

Top-seller: Mario Kart 7 – 109,463

Nintendo 3DS sales: 197,952 | Total sales: 4,282,142

PlayStation Vita sales: 42,648 | Total sales: 439,986

 

Sales slowed down across the board last week, coming out of the holidays in Japan. Mario Kart 7 held onto the top spot for another week, while Monster Hunter 3G inched closer to selling out of the million copies that Capcom shipped.

 

The only new item that charted during the week was The Idolm@ster Anime & G4U: Vol. 3. Meanwhile, PlayStation Vita sales dipped to sub-50k for its third week on the market.

 

Konami’s recent trio of PSP games that failed to chart in the top-20 during Christmas week had an opportunity to make an appearance last week. Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 in particular, has sold very well, at 157,000 copies. We now have some insight into PowerPro Baseball 2011 Ketteiban and Frontier Gate sales, too.

 

The top-20 software sales chart for the week was as follows:
