Quite interesting I think. The top 5 were:
1. Professor Layton2. Nintendogs3. Samurai Chronicles4.Street Figher 45. Ridge Racer
The funny thing is that all of these games were outsold by 2 PSP games! Phantasy Star and somthing else lol. Anyway that's not the point of this topic.
Does this list suprise you? I guess it goes to show how popular Layton is in Japan, and what a pity it is that it's not available to us Westerners at launch.

Professor Layton is one of my favorite series and I am utterly disappointed it's not available at launch.

it's obviously because the 4th game isn't out yet (at least in America) and it's a text heavy game

Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle outsold nintendogs + cats? I'm shocked. I hope we get our taste of 3D Professor Layton sometime this year.
I'm back (for the moment)!

Hmm. I don't like either of the top 2 games. Proffessor Layton is a puzzle game, there for doesn't really satisfy my 'gaming' need. Although it is fairly clever at times, from what I have played of the past games, it's not for me. And, the typical pet game. I don't know why, but over the past, what 4 years, these games have become popular. Although yes, they can be amusing to watch a virtual pet act realistically, but thinking about it, is it really a 'game'? Games usually provide a challenge to the player, which involves skill to surpass, and even Prof. Layton incorporates that.
If it's not a game I'm not intrested.

What exactly do you consider funny about that? There have already been millions of PSPs sold in Japan, whereas only about 400k 3DS were available, so how could one expect a 3DS game to outsell all other popular games?...

We need Spectre's Flute DS first

Is it really the best selling 3DS game? Wow.
It's just a collection of mini games, right? If so, then I'm not interested...
I finally have a Wii U now! And Splatoon and Smash Bros U!

That's intresting, I would've thought Nintendogs + Cats or Street Fighter would be the best-selling. The former will probably be the best-seller here in America.

Japan loves their Layton. And their cute animals.
As stated in the same article, the 3DS sold about 375,000 units, far outselling the next best selling system, the PSP, which sold about 47,000 units.

I guess I would've bought Professor Layton if it were a launch title, so I can see why it's the best selling game

...I'm afraid you have been mis-informed about the Professor Layton franchise. It is a point and click adventure-ish type of game where you move around talking to people and solving hundreds of puzzles. The puzzles get very tough sometimes and it is very rewarding to get through it after being stumped for a long time. The game is also very story heavy. All the games feature great writing and awesome stories. If you haven't tried a Layton game yet, I give it my highest recommendation for DS games.

If you don't like the games it's fine by me you can watch the movie instead
