<< Last week’s software sales chart


Last week saw the release of One Piece: Romance Dawn for the Nintendo 3DS. Released a year after the original PSP version, the 3DS port of the game sold close to 25,000 copies, landing at the #3 spot on the software sales chart. The #1 spot was once again occupied by Namco Bandai’s Disney Magic Castle.


Meanwhile, Dragon’s Crown appears to have received a new shipment after the PlayStation 3 version of the game sold out at launch. The PS3 version of Dragon’s Crown jumped from nearly 14,000 copies sold last week to nearly 21,000 copies sold this week. Impressive.
