<< Last week’s software sales chart

 

Last week, Nintendo released Mario & Luigi: Dream Team in Japan, and the game sold nearly 100,000 copies in its first week.

 

For comparison, Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story, released in 2009 for the Nintendo DS, sold 192,945 copies in its first week. Perhaps sales tracker Media Create will provide some insight regarding the drop in sales in their follow-up report later in the week.

 

Meanwhile, it bears mentioning that the budget version of Danganronpa continues to sell surprisingly well, for what is a simple budget re-release of an existing game. Also worth noting is that Digimon World Re:Digitize Decode is continuing to sell reasonably well, too, given its first week sales and the sales of the original game.

 

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