Animal Crossing: New Leaf Tops Sales Charts (28/7/13)

July 28, 2013


So the boring Sunday bug has reoccurred once again this week in the world of Nintendo. Little interesting news was released so many websites didn’t bother posting any articles. However, this doesn’t happen at World Nintendo News. Just in case you didn’t see, look at part one of our ‘10 Games To Save The Wii U‘ article we posted earlier today. Anyway, onto the little news that happened today….

Famitsu, the famous Japanese gaming magazine, announced the best selling games in Japan since the beginning of 2013 in the latest edition of their magazine. As you might expect, the incredibly popular Animal Crossing: New Leaf was the best selling game over the last six months. You can see the first 10 in the list below:

  1. [3DS] Animal Crossing: New Leaf
  2. [3DS] Dragon Quest VII: Fighters of Eden
  3. [3DS] Friend Collection: New Life
  4. [3DS] Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon
  5. [PS3] Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
  6. [PS3] One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2
  7. [PS3] Dynasty Warriors 8
  8. [3DS] New Super Mario Bros. 2
  9. [3DS] Shin Megami Tensei IV
  10. [3DS] Professor Layton and the Legacy of Civilization

Over the top 100, which you can see here, Sony consoles had more games then Nintendo consoles did. However, the 3DS was the console with the majority of the games in the top 100. You can see how the games are split between the consoles below:

  1. 3DS – 32
  2. PS3 – 27
  3. PSP – 15
  4. PSV – 13
  5. Wii – 7
  6. Wii U – 5
  7. NDS – 1

So this means:

  1. Sony – 55
  2. Nintendo – 45

Surprising that Sony would preform better then Nintendo, but that does show the struggles the Wii U is facing.

Anyway, that’s all for today. From next week, I’ll post a review of a Wii or DS game which you can buy on the cheap every Sunday so the news drought doesn’t seem so obvious. Anyway, till tomorrow.

From → 3DS, DS, Wii, Wii U
