3DS Launch Title Sales Chart (UK)

Posted by Corbie Dillard

Capcom's brawler flies off store shelves

Well the Nintendo 3DS system has now been available in the UK for a mere four days, but the launch title sales figures have already started rolling in and there are actually a few surprises to be found.

It's not often that we see a third-party offering manage to beat out Nintendo's first-party titles, but it seems gamers are flocking to Capcom's 3D rendition of their popular Street Fighter IV release Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition. Of course you won't have to peruse too far down the list in order to find a Nintendo-published title with Pilotwings Resort popping up at the #2 spot. And in a bit of a surprise, Ubisoft's Rayman 3D title manages to debut all the way up in the third spot, showing strong sales for what is essentially a port of a 2000 Dreamcast game, although we enjoyed it.

3DS Sales Chart

01. Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition
02. Pilotwings Resort

The 3DS games I've reviewed are the top four games on the chart. Coincidence? I think not.

I'm glad Capcom is doing well. Maybe they'll be interested in porting other of their PS3 / XBOX 360 games to the 3DS if this keeps up. I'm also glad that Nintendo fans who don't have other consoles finally get to experience the Street Fighter IV series and its many new characters.

Why is Shadow Wars last? I mean, it's ranked lower than Sims 3.... I have that game and it's awsome. It's like a cross between CoD and Advance Wars.




I have Shadow Wars and it's my favourite launch game! But it's important to realise it's NOT last, it's 10th of the 17 or 18 launch titles(can't remember the exact amount) It outsold 2 of ther Nintendogs titles, Asphalt 3D, Splinter Cell and Steel Diver to name a few.

LMAO! I only bought the top 3 titles . Here's what I have to say abaout those titles:

Super Street Fighter IV 3D: Best port of a game EVER! It just works on a 3DS...SSFIV on the go? Yes please (I'm playing it at College right now xD)

Pilotwings Resort: AMAZING 3D usage! You really feel like you're in there!

Rayman 3D: One of the best 3D platformers you can buy for the 3DS (before Super Mario 3DS comes out ). The framerate can get a tad annoying though, but the 3D makes up for it (cause it has wonderful 3D, for me at least).

Now Nintendo, please give me Mario Kart 3DS already!!

Wow, very surprising list all around. I suspect that the Rayman sales have a lot to do with the fact that they rather sneakily names it Rayman 3D, when it's actually Rayman 2.

Suprised to see only ONE version of nintendogs there, and that version is in 7th :/

SSF IV 3D is awesome game! Loving it, more on the 3DS than on the PS3 as it's on the go.

Were samurai warriors? I bought it today from hmv and guy told that sw has been flyinging off shelfs!



Yosher said:

Well I got SSFIV only because of the lack of anything better. I don't like it much to be honest.. =/



Colors said:

I got Pilotwings Resort yesterday and picked up SSIV3D and Rayman 3D today (Buy one get one half off 3DS games at ToysRus FTW!) and so far, my fav is SSIV3D
