After five consecutive weeks of success. ;P It's apparently sold 1/4 of the Japanese Wii U install base in that region. And you can bet it will continue to sell on through the lifecycle, even if the numbers are lower. It's better than you might think.

the overall numbers are still great though

No surprise. The game has sold nearly 500k copies there. Not too bad in a region where there is what? 1.5-1.75 million consoles? It has done fantastic so far. Game will continue to sell as all Nintendo games do. Every new Wii U owner will undoubtedly get this game at some point.

Look at New Super Mario Bros U, has sold over 4 million copies. On a platform that has what 6 million users?

running out of stock since it sold through over 80% initial shipment.

It slip down to 8th because the first 6 slots are new games that came out this week week it will go back up to number two or three

I'm not going to count on that happening, because it's sold through to a huge amount of the fan base in Japan so what's left is likely the people who either aren't interested, don't know about it, or are teetering on the edge of getting it.

But even if it sticks to No.8, it's still selling terrifically, by install base standards, so I'm not even worried about its place on the list.
