Super Smash Bros. For 3DS First Week Sales In Japan Are Incredible

Japanese tracking firm, Media Create, has released the latest sales charts for video games for the week ending September 14. This weeks sales data are of particular relevance, as it marks the debut of Super Smash Bros. For 3DS in Japan. With only two days tracked, Super Smash Bros. 3DS has sold close to 1 million copies. The release of the title has given the 3DS a small boost in hardware sales, with an additional 40 000 handhelds entering Japanese households.

As for the Wii U, Mario Kart 8 is hanging around the charts, but barely, selling around 7 000 units. Unfortunately, the hardware sales for Nintendo’s home console leaves more to be desired – as the Wii U scrapes past the 7 ooo mark. Thankfully, Hyrule Warriors has surpassed the 100 000 milestone this week, which should please Koei Tecmo and Nintendo.

It is important to note that the New Nintendo 3DS is just around the corner and this is likely why the 3DS received such a small boost, despite Super Smash Bros. For 3DS achieving incredibly success.
