Nintendo DS dominates games sales charts in Japan with Final Fantasy III in the lead


Sales charts for the week of August 21-27 are entirely filled with Nintendo DS games. Leading the pack is Final Fantasy III with 503,051 units sold. In a distant, but respectable second place is New Super Mario Bros. with 65,556 copies sold. Rune Factory: Shin Bokujou Monogatari, an RPG done by Marvelous Interactive, sold 42,210 copies. Unfortunately for Rune Factory it was released on the same day as Final Fantasy III, which might have cut into its sales. In 2007 Rising Star Games is going to localize the game for Europe so maybe it will perform better there. Rounding off the top ten is English Training DS with 17,465 copies sold.
