Period: The week of Sep 12th – Sep 18th (2011)

Top-seller: Dragon Quest Anniversary Collection – 263,398

Nintendo 3DS sales: 58,837 | Total sales: 1,835,442


Last week was slow. Very slow, thanks to the Tokyo Game Show. The one major game that slipped out grabbed the top spot, and that was Dragon Quest Anniversary Collection for the Wii. Watching how long-tailed sellers like Dragon Quest hold up on the charts post-release is always fun, so the next few weeks should be interesting.


5pb’s Dunamis15 also made it into the top-20 software sales chart, but the PlayStation 3 version was all the way down at the #14 spot with 5,970 copies sold. The other two new games on the chart were an Idea Factory title and Winnie the Pooh: 100 Acre Wood’s Cooking Book at #20.


In the hardware category, Nintendo 3DS hardware sales received a boost of nearly 10,000 units from the week prior. Was it because of the slowdown in competition or did 10,000 people suddenly get really excited for Monster Hunter? (Probably more the former)


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