<< Last week’s software sales chart

<< How to read and understand sales

 

Last week saw no new releases in Japan due to the country’s Golden Week holiday. Instead, the top-20 was made up of existing games, some old and some new. Unfortunately, while it was a holiday week, software sales were low all around.

 

The #1 spot was occupied by Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition, which sold nearly 39,000 copies in its, second week, bringing total sales to over 218,000 copies. Meanwhile, Style Savvy 3 occupied the #2 spot, and has achieved total sales of over 120,000 copies at retail.

 

The #3 spot was held by Minecraft on the PS Vita, and was the only game on a non-Nintendo platform to chart in the top-20 during Golden Week.

 

The complete top-20 software sales chart for last week is as follows:
