Japan Weekly Sales Charts

Christmas has come and gone for another year and now it’s time for the weekly sales charts from Japan. Time to see what’s been selling and what’s struggling in Japan.

Last time we checked in, the Wii U from Nintendo had just been launched but seemed to be having issues with both hardware and software sales. The Wii U was selling but wasn’t doing as well when stacked up against the Nintendo 3DS which has massive selling power in Japan. The 3DS XL managed to shift 255,949 units while the standard 3DS sold through 159,323 units while the Wii U shifted 122,843 nestling it nicely into third place.
