Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D Knocked Off The Top Spot in Japanese Sales Charts

The 3DS continues to dominate both software and hardware charts

Last week saw Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D swing into pole position in the Japanese sales charts in its first week of release. The title was one of five 3DS games placed in the top five but that dominance is now over as the PlayStation 3 title The Last of Us fought through the hoards...

Animal Crossing: New Leaf Secures Second in the UK Charts, Again

A fine performance from the 3DS exclusive

Animal Crossing: New Leaf is hot stuff right now, earning Nintendo plenty of Bells as it continues to attract gamers and cause obsessions over fossils, tree shaking and the latest cool hats available to buy.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate sneaks into the top 40

It's UK chart day, once again, and we have more 3DS success stories to share, as two of Nintendo's notable recent releases continue to show strong momentum in the top 10.

Tomodachi Collection: New Life Reinstated At Number One In Japanese Sales Charts

3DS continues to shine

Tomodachi Collection: New Life has been reinstated at the top of the sales charts in Japan after taking a week off to accommodate for several new releases. The Mii-based life-sim has been doing good business for Nintendo in Japan and shot up from 4th position to number one, knocking last week's new entry Shin Megami Tensei IV...

Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D Maintains Top Ten 3DS Run

Clinging on at number eight

UKIE has issued the UK all-format software charts for last week, and confirmation of Donkey Kong Country Returns coming in eighth place — three down from its debut week — means another week with a 3DS exclusive in the UK top 10; we've now had quite a few consecutive weeks where that's been the case. Elsewhere,...

Wii U version of Resident Evil Revelations sneaks into top ten

For fans of the franchise, Shin Megami Tensei IV can't come to the West soon enough. The Atlus title will arrive in North America on 16th July with some collectible goodies, while a European release is confirmed but, as yet, doesn't have a solid date. It landed in Japan last week,...

Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D Swings Into the UK Top 10

The 3DS is on a roll

For many months there was little point in reporting the UKIE UK all-format charts, as Nintendo games rarely featured. That's changed in recent times, with the 3DS enjoying a surge of popular releases that have not only started strongly, but continue to perform well after week one. This week's latest entry is Donkey Kong...

Japanese Hardware Sales Slow Down For the Second Consecutive Week

Tomodachi Collection: New Life knocked off top spot

This week's Japanese chart results are in, and show that the slow software release schedule in the past couple of weeks is causing a hit on hardware sales across the board. Only the PSP enjoyed a small boost, which can be attributed to the fact that this week's number one is for Sony's ageing...

LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins Catches Up With the UK Top Ten

A little more sales success for 3DS

With the start of the week comes the UK software chart, and once again there's some positive news for 3DS titles. On the Wii U front little has changed, with no exclusives appearing in the top 40 but, potentially, some contributions to multi-platform success stories such as Injustice: Gods Among Us. The...

3DS LL (XL) sales double

Another week of Japanese chart results, and another happy story for the 3DS. In recent weeks we've seen consistent success for Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon and the ever-green Animal Crossing: New Leaf, but the release of Tomodachi Collection: New Life, the life-simulation game currently exclusive to Japan, has given another...

3DS XL Limited Edition brings major hardware bump

Fire Emblem: Awakening arrived in Europe last week, bringing with it exceptional strategy gameplay and a level of challenge to lead to plenty of chewed nails for early adopters. Critically acclaimed and already performing well in North America, the question was how well it would perform in Europe...

Luigi's Mansion 2 Refuses to Get Scared Out of the UK Top 10

No Wii U exclusives in the top 40

Last week we were rather pleased to report that Luigi's Mansion 2 secured 5th place in the UK all-format chart for the second week running; maintaining a top 10 place beyond launch week is relatively rare for 3DS titles in the region. That was an excellent achievement, but even better news this week is that Luigi is...

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon still number one in the charts

Update: As correctly pointed out on Twitter by NintenDaan, it's worth remembering that Media Create charts only account for physical retail sales. The full sales for Animal Crossing: New Leaf will be further beyond three million due to its success on the 3DS eShop. Original Article: Last...

Luigi's Mansion 2 Still Scaring the UK Top 10

Luigi's got legs

When it comes to the UK software charts, we're typically used to seeing major games exclusive to Nintendo platforms making an early bee-line for the top 10 before, in many cases, promptly dropping back to modest placings the following week. That's not the case with Luigi's Mansion 2, however, which has steadfastly held onto the...
