Animal Crossing 3DS Killing it in Japanese Sales, Downloads Through the Roof

"The shortage has led the Japanese to do something extremely uncharacteristic of this market: download it. On the PSN and Xbox Live Marketplace, the usual estimate of download sales is around 10% of the retail number, but not with New Leaf. According to several Tweets by Iwata, the game has sold 200,000 digital copies." -RPGLand (3DS, Animal Crossing: New Leaf)

"More than 200,000 downloaded"

One of those is me!! OoO//

Those sales are tremendous. Really liking the Japanese 3ds lineup going though March. The USA lineup isn't quite as good, but it is getting there... slowly.
