<< How to read and understand sales


The only new release in Japan last week was The LEGO Movie Videogame, which sold around 4,000 copies on the Nintendo 3DS and 3,500 copies on the Wii U. Outside of that, every other slot in the top-20 software sales chart consisted of older software.


On the bright side, this pulled a few older games back into the top-20, allowing us to see how they’re selling. Notably, Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission 2 is at 154,098, and it looks like people are still buying Dragon Quest X on the Nintendo 3DS.
