Another Week in Japan: Hardware and software numbers 4/7-4/13

In a strange turn of events, there's only one new DS game in Japan's top thirty this week, and that's Oshiri Kajiri Mushi's Rhythm Lesson DS. In case that title doesn't ring a bell, you may know it better as "that butt-biting bug game." If there's one thing we've learned from this bug, it's that bit...

DS software extremely well-represented in 2007 Japanese sales

Japanese site geimin.net has compiled a list of the 500 highest-selling games in Japan (according to Media Create numbers), and, as would be expected of a video game thing related to Japan, the DS shows up a lot. 215 times, in fact.

Another Week in Japan: Hardware and software numbers 3/31-4/6

Sony dominated the first (and last) five in the top thirty software chart, but aside from that, everything else was Nintendo. The DS had fifteen games to represent it, but even if you added up the sales numbers for all those games, the total wouldn't come close to what Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G ...

Another Week in Japan: Hardware and software numbers 3/24-3/30

The PSP might have dominated in Japan, selling as much hardware last week as every other system combined, but that doesn't mean the DS didn't do well for itself. In fact, Nintendo's handheld came in second place, selling around 60,000 units. The story is similar in software, as DS titles came no whe...

Big in Japan: DS coasts to fiscal 2007 victory

Been keeping up with sales figures from Japan recently? If so, you'll have noticed something unusual: for the first time in years, the DS isn't absolutely creaming the competition. Whether the PSP's resurgence will last is another debate for another post, but it hasn't been able to prevent Nint...

Another Week in Japan: Hardware and software numbers 3/17-3/23

Last week was the week of new releases! Anticipating high holiday sales, many publishers made sure to release their games last week, with a total of fifteen ending up in the top thirty (seven of those being DS titles).

Another Week in Japan: Hardware and software numbers 3/10-3/16

"If you bundle a game with a special brush stylus, they will come," the heavens whispered to Nintendo. While we expected Beautiful Letter Training (also known as Bimoji or Calligraphy Training) to do well, we didn't expect it to sell 66,000 copies in its first week. This first-party effort by Nint...

Japan loves Doraemon, and it shows. Not only did the manga-based robot cat have a successful DS baseball game, but now a game based on the manga itself debuted in the top ten. Soma Bringer was still the top dog for the handheld, though, selling a total of 68,000 copies in two weeks. Are numbers lik...
