<< Last week’s software sales chart

 

Last week saw a slate of new releases in Japan, with Namco Bandai’s The Idolm@ster Shiny Festa taking the top spot. Shiny Festa was released in three versions—Funky Note, Groovy Tune and Honey Sound—and collectively, they sold 119,132 copies, debuting at the #1 spot for the week.

 

At #2 was a rather admirable performance for the re-release of Dark Souls with the “Artorias of the Abyss” DLC included in the package. That sold 67,002 copies. Following it at #3 was Zone of the Enders HD Collection with 44,751 copies sold.

 

Lower down the list, Borderlands 2 was represented on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on the Nintendo 3DS remained in the top-10 for the week.
