Games

Dating sim game for the 3DS, New Love Plus, did great business in Japan during Valentine’s Day with the popular and delayed dating sim shooting to the top of the software sales charts in Japan. The title was supposed to have been released in December but Konami held back the release to coincide with Valentine’s Day.

The game sold a whopping 104,969 units beating both newcomers Theatrhythm Final Fantasy for 3DS and Binary Domain. The previous entry in the dating sim sold 88,000 copies during its first week on the DS back in July 2010. Binary Domain on PS3 took second place while the Xbox 360 version didn’t even make the top 20.

Rhythm 3DS game, Theatrhythm Final Fantasy, placed third with 67,683 units shifted. There were some other memorable games making their first entry into the top 20 like Samurai Warriors 3Z Special for PSP, the Vita and 3DS versions of Good People Die and Tekken 3D on 3DS. Surprisingly is that the adventure game from Chunsoft on 3DS is beating the Vita version.
