Period: The week of May 23rd – May 29th (2011)

Top-seller: One Piece: Unlimited Cruise SP – 80,488

Nintendo 3DS sales: 24,283 | Total sales: 1,037,542

 

One Piece: Unlimited Cruise SP provided the Nintendo 3DS with a bit of a boost upon its release last week, with the game itself claiming the top spot on the software sales chart at close to 85,000 units sold. 3DS hardware sales rose from sub-18k units the week prior to just over 24,000 units.

 

Meanwhile Pandora’s Tower: Until I Return to Your Side didn’t fare as well in terms of hard numbers, but this is now more or less the norm for any Wii releases that aren’t identifiably high-profile, given the state of the Wii market in Japan at present. Pandora’s Tower sold 21,445 units during the week.

 

Cave also released Red Katana Shin for the Xbox 360 the same week, selling as little as 5,603 copies of the game. For the sake of comparison, Deathsmiles 2X sold 16,112 copies on the Xbox 360 during the week of its own debut in 2010.

 

As far as current releases go, Battle & Get! Pokémon Typing DS reappeared at #12 on the software sales chart for the week, after being completely absent the week prior. In fact, the game wasn’t even in the top-50, which makes us wonder what happened. A complete shortage of copies, perhaps?

 

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