Almost Complete Nintendomination Appears in Major Japanese Retailer’s Weekly Sales Charts

Every week the major Japanese retailer Tsutaya publishes its sales charts, that are normally considered a good indication on what the more precise Media Create sales charts will look like on Wednesday, considering that Tsutaya has a large number of stores spread across the whole country.

This week’s sales charts (from August the 12th to August the 18th) will definitely spark a few smiles atop Nintendo’s ivory tower. (3DS, PS Vita, PS3, Wii U)

Those Extra Months on Pikmin 3 really show in the charts.
I hope that the other games have the same pay-offs.

The 3DS goes without saying, with the way it is performing world wide, people who believe that Nintendo is about to bow-out are really delusional.

Anyway, October and November will introduce "New Rivals" - and we will see if the hype matches their sales.

i take dragon crown over the other kiddies nintendo games everydays.
Brucis  +   828d ago
I've been greatly enjoying Dragon's Crown but there's no need to be a jackass.
PopRocks359  +   827d ago
Immature is a better word, I would say. If you can't appreciate something because it's "too kiddy" then you probably have no place calling yourself a fan of the medium. There's a reason why film enthusiasts have a great deal of appreciation for Pixar Animation Studios when all they produce is family entertainment.

I like dragon's crown too but I also enjoy 3DS games. I love both my Vita and my 3DS XL. I get best of both worlds.

Give me money
Xof  +   828d ago
You should really try playing a Nintendo game sometime. You're in for a big surprise.
jcnba28  +   827d ago
Yes because games like Fire Emblem: Awakening, RE: Revelations, Shin Megami Tensei 4 etc. are such kiddy games.

MrMister  +   827d ago
To be fair, the only Nintendo game you mentioned was Fire Emblem. And of the 3 games you mentioned, it was the only one to not get a mature rating (Fire Emblem was teen rated).

But anyway, that other guy (dark-kyon) didn't have to insult Nintendo's games like that. Besides, Dragon Crown was only a 3rd party game too.

Go head Nintendo.
EXVirtual  +   828d ago
Whoa. Good job Nintendo. This is kinda off topic but is anyone gonna see Kick Ass 2 soon?
mii-gamer  +   828d ago
yep. Violence and Superhero vigilantes = win
EXVirtual  +   828d ago
I know right. Not to mention Chloe Mortez is SPICY! Again. Pretty off topic.
On topic Nintendo is pretty good with swimming in money in Japan.
sincitysir1  +   828d ago
I saw it and honestly it was mediocre. It's awkward and characters disappear and u don't even care.
AJBACK2FRAG  +   827d ago
Hilarious also. Cruddy story but so very funny. Anybody get the Brat Pack (Rick Vietch comic books) refrence?
HugoDrax  +   827d ago
Watched it at midnight. Hylarious! and is everything you expect from the franchise. I'll say my favorite aspects of the film involved Mother Russia.
animegamingnerd  +   827d ago
saw it this morning it was good but not as good as the first one
AJBACK2FRAG  +   827d ago
Yesterday. Extremely funny.
bulbulito  +   828d ago

Nice but don't be surprised if you get a lot of disagrees. Some individuals hate facts almost as much as they hate anything Nintendo. lol
sincitysir1  +   828d ago
A disagree for u but not for the other guy. =]
Qrphe  +   828d ago
Dang zeek
Xof  +   828d ago

One word!
biglittlesps  +   827d ago
They were always good in Handheld and it has no competition since Vita is following different experience and also costly, but now look at their Home Console which is doing bad where PS3 and Xbox doing great.

Wii U is following different experience.. holidays will be interesting indeed!
Realplaya  +   827d ago
They have released under 5 games for the Wii U and Pikmin the first HD game is doing great sitting at 8 with a lower install base and still selling well against 3DS games in Japan.
j-blaze  +   827d ago
lol this is nothing, wait until Monster Hunter 4 and Pokemon X and Y come out
TekoIie  +   827d ago
I am actually really interested as to how well X/Y will sell.
truechainz  +   827d ago
I am too. A lot of my former pokemon playing friends are looking to pick this up because they have always wanted a solid 3D one.
Tewi-Inaba  +   827d ago
It should be pretty nuts this time around, it's the first global release pokemon

750k even 1mil it's 1st day is entirely possible.

Good for Nintendo with lots of 3DS titles in the top ten, but let's wait for the actual sales numbers.
No_Pantaloons  +   827d ago
Doesn't really mean anything, 8/10 were 3ds games, everyone knows they dominate the handheld market. In other news: water is wet, and scissors cut paper.

R00bot  +   827d ago
Yeah, but the 3DS is also dominating the console market, too. It's beating the PS3 and 360, not just the VITA.
No_Pantaloons  +   827d ago
People are tired of ps3/360, most are saving their money for the holidays and playing their backlog of games to bide their time. Other than GTA5, the 3ds doesn't has much competition right now.
jcnba28  +   827d ago
3DS is dominating all gaming platforms. That's something to boast about.
AJBACK2FRAG  +   827d ago
but paper covers rock!
The_Villager  +   827d ago
No surprise here, after all these years Nintendo are still top dog.
ContraCode  +   827d ago
3DS is crushing it! I hope the Wii U gets some more titles on the top charts soon.

Nintendo definitely has the handhold market down. All about that software...
AJBACK2FRAG  +   827d ago
In five or six years they'll be one in the same! Enjoy!
