Well, not only do we get a change at the top, but we get a game absolutely storming out of the gate. After just a few days, Dragon Quest VII: Fighters of Eden has obliterated the competition and is set to easily top the 1,000,000 mark. In a bit of a coincidence, the last game that truly ran away like this in week one was Animal Crossing: New Leaf, which Dragon Quest VII passed for #1 in this week’s list.

And just like the last dozen or so weeks, the 3DS dominates the charts, adding over 120,000 units in hardware as well as holding onto half of the Top 20 and taking the top 5 spots in software. Fantasy Life continues to hold its own as it marches toward a quarter of a million sold. New Super Mario Bros. 2 and Mario Kart 7 continue to compete to see which will be the next 2,000,000 seller on the 3DS. (It will most likely be Dragon Quest VII.) And Animal Crossing: New Leaf sees an increase in sales as it tops 2.5 million and continues to sell long after its November 2012 release.

    Funny how every week some Neogaf users said Wii U is sinking super low with no games and that contrast with the Vita who will be better with each new game….

    Fact is…Nintendo heavy hitter is coming down the line for the Wii U and the Vita have no heavy hitter.

    Nintendo games will sell enough to be profitable, I dont expect the Wii U to match the Wii but it will do much better than the GC and N64 combine. As for the Vita, at this point who care, I will just get whatever good game coming out for it and that it, so as long as Sony doesnt cut it dead we are good.

  • i have to say considering how well Fantasy Life is doing how is there no news about it coming to US or people asking for it!

    Dang. 3DS is cleaning up in the land of the rising sun. You’d think these kind of (in some cases, very unexpected) successes would make third parties and even Nintendo less wary about bringing their Japanese games westward.

    At the very least I hope we get Ghost Watch. Time Travelers is a pipe dream…

    …but I dream it anyway.
