Charts: 20th December 2011 (North America)

Posted by James Newton

What's filling digital stockings this week?

With just a few days until Christmas here's what 3DS eShop users have been purchasing in the past seven days.

Buoyed by its appearance as a Club Nintendo reward, 3D Classics: Xevious shoots up to second, just behind Intelligent Systems' adorable puzzler. The Club Nintendo effect also applies to Mario vs. Donkey Kong, now up to third.

Pushmo sits at the top but Xevious is mounting a good offence. Will the Club Nintendo reward, fuelled by registration cards from Christmas presents, manage to topple Pushmo next week?

The marching Marios trample on PopCap's dangerous garden. Anonymous Notes moves up eight places, though we're really not sure why, and someone clearly snipped Cut the Rope's sales tail as it falls a whopping 15 places.

Case in point: Any game Nintendo gives away for free (or for Club Nintendo coins) is going to shoot to the top of the charts. ;)

Nice to see Pushmo doing so well. Great little game. I'm looking forward to seeing how Might Switch Force does next next week. I hope it sells well. :)

Yeeeeaaaaaaaaaah, Pushmo!

I also can't believe Urban Champion has sold more copies on the whole than TwinBee. That is a travesty.

@zeeroid
Wow, really? That's depressing. lol

Good to see I wasn't the only one who thought to take advantage of Xevious for 100 coins. A game I read about being decent and having really cool 3D but not really having a personal experience or really knowing if it's really worth it for 6 bucks? I dunno. The same game for 100 coins that I pretty much get for free? Sign me up!

I've got six of the top eight. Haven't picked up any of the 3D classics yet. Did grab Mario vs DK though with my Club points.
