<< How to read and understand sales

 

Last week, Nintendo released Splatoon in Japan, and the multiplayer shooter sold 144,818 copies in its first week on store shelves. That’s a respectable figure by Wii U standards, and had the game not sold out at launch, it would likely have sold even better.

 

While Splatoon took the #1 spot on the software sales chart, the #2 spot went to Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX. This is a remixed edition of the first two Project Mirai games, and is also the version of the game that Sega will release in North America and Europe later this year.

 

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