Japan Weekly Sales (April 24th – April 30th)

It’s time to take a break from all the E3 madness and look at the sales in Japan. I realize this post is a few days late, but that’s because last week was Golden Week in Japan. It’s a series of holidays that run through the week and most people don’t have work – including Media-Create. Anyway, we have them now so check it out.

GBA – 69 [??]
XBX – 29 [474,409]

The Winning Eleven franchise is as big as ever and Tetris DS is obviously a hit in Japan with its large adult DS-owning population. This week also marks the week that both Brain Training games cross over 2 million sold each. They sell a load along with mainstays like Animal Crossing: Wild World and English Training.

The DS Lite sold even more than the week before it while the DS came back to 40k after a week at 8k. It looks like Nintendo might still be manufacturing the older brand to keep up with demand for the DS system. The DS and DS Lite together sold more than every other system combined. You can see that Nintendo is hoping that success continues with the Wii.
