Could this be Nintendo's latest DS hit in Japan?

It may have taken awhile to be released, but Nintendo's highly-anticipated Tomodachi Collection had a great first day opening in Japan.

Out of the 76,000 units that were shipped, 38,000 were sold on the game's first day on the market, which equates to a 50% sell-through rate. That's pretty impressive seeing as the top game last week sold only 38,000 units in a week.

Media-Create will release its sales chart dated June 15-21 later this week. If all goes well, Tamodachi Collection should take the top spot, followed closely by Infinite Space (DS, Sega), Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days (DS, Square-Enix), Fate/Unlimited Codes Portable (PSP, Capcom), and Sloane and MacHale's Mysterious Story (DS, Level-5).
