3DS Big Three Keep on Selling in Japan

Nearly 4 million served

Nintendo's Christmas trio of top titles continues to sell in Japan into January, with Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land and Monster Hunter 3 G still topping the country's sales charts.

Between them the games have sold 3.94 million copies in Japan, an incredible figure as the most recent hardware sales put the machine at 3.6m units in Japan. We're guessing there's either 340,000 very confused people out there or people are buying more than one game each. It could be anything.

Landing at number five in its first week is the much-anticipated Resident Evil Revelations, serving up 160,575 sales in its first week.
