Tsutaya has released their latest video game sales ranking for the week between December 9 to December 15.
Super Mario 3D World and Lightning Returns were huge flops, but at least they are maintaining, even some weeks after their launches.
Given it's sequel status, I don't believe it's such a huge flop. Still sells much more than most JRPGs on the market.
Super Mario 3D World was not a flop. Mario games sell over time. Stop looking at it from a week to week basis. Check back in a year or so and see how the sales are.
3DS all day and night. The Japanese prefer handheld games hands down. When I go to Japan I think I will pick up Lightning returns in the bargain bin. That Nobunaga game is EXPENSIVE! (like 8000 yen!)
Not surprising to see the 3DS and its games selling so well. Street pass is a huge thing in Japan thanks to how tightly packed their population is in some areas.
