Dragon Quest Monsters 2 Storms to the Top of the Japanese Charts

3DS XL (LL) sales enjoy a boost

Dragon Quest Monsters 2: Iru and Luca’s Wonderful Mysterious Keys has enjoyed its début in the Japanese charts, with its success also bringing a boost to the 3DS; as for Wii U, there's not much to bring cheers.

This week's Media Create results are dominated by two newcomers on the 3DS, with the DQ remake storming to some significant numbers while Puyo Puyo Tetris has a comparitively quiet start.
