Media Create: Nintendo Consoles Dominate Japan; Splatoon Impresses Again

The latest weekly Japanese video game sales from Media Create has been released, and it appears to be positive news for Nintendo consoles and games.

The Nintendo Wii U and 3DS are the best selling consoles for the Week. For the week ending June 14th, Nintendo managed to move around 26, 000 3DS units and 16, 000 Wii U units. This is the third consecutive week that the Wii U has sold its competitor, the PS4.

The spur on Wii U sales can largely be attributed to Splatoon. During Splatoon’s third week it has managed to sell around 53, 000 more copies, putting its lifetime sales to 266, 929 in Japan, which is quite impressive for a new IP.

Rythm Heaven and Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden had respectable debuts, moving 157, 591 and 74.660 copies respectively.
