    [Wii U] Super Mario 3D World (Ninendo, 11/21/13) – 64,573 (392,087)

    Should be ”Nintendo”. ;)

    • Sal Romano

      Grazie. =)

  • Pyrofrost

    Nice work Vita and Wii U!

  • XypherCode

    I can’t believe MK7 is still doing well in the top 20. If MK8 doesn’t move Wii U units this year I don’t know what will. And it seems to be looking good for the Vita as well. :)

  • Ping92

    go wii u and vita!

  • Saphiren

    Drakengard 3 is doing GREAT! <3

  • shogunknight

    Wow, vita is doing great. Nice wiiU numbers too, hope it stays this way if not better in the coming weeks

  • César H. Sandoval

    If FFXHD keeps going this good in terms of sales, no doubt Squenix is gonna push for some FFX-3 crazyness.

    • Lelouch Vi Britannia

      While unconfirmed i hear that Motomu Toriyama could possibly be director for FFX-3. This isnt official at least i hope not.

      • Nice Boat

        For Tidus’ sake I hope they at least retcon that thing labeled as novel

      • Anime10121

        Why wouldnt he be? He was one of the 3 directors of the original X, and the sole director of its sequel.

        • César H. Sandoval

          Wow, the first one had 3 directors? No wonder why X2 was so different then.

  • bloodiOS

    Holy shit! In total, Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster performed better than LR did in its first week. Man, a lot of people bought the Twin Pack! Isn’t it more expensive than the PS3 version?

    • Pyrofrost

      Nah, they’re the same price, 7140 yen retail and 6400 yen digital.

    • César H. Sandoval

      FFX is better than LR, at least the first one IMHO

      • Budgiecat

        A lot of things are better than LR….

        for instance……honey mustard. And cheese dip…

    • Alvaro Bernedo

      The FFX Vita Twin Pack had also the 4th largest opening week of any Vita game, only behind GE2, P4G and Miku.

      And if we add the standalone version of FFX HD, then FFX HD Vita would have ~175k units sold on first week, making it the second best opening for any Vita game.

      Not to shabby.

      • MrFinalgamer

        let’s hope the second week for this game stays as strong ^_^

        • Alvaro Bernedo

          It will be! According to Famitsu numbers (already published, and they follow Media Create pretty closely), FFX/X-2 sold about 50k on PS3 and 35k on Vita.

          I think the HD remaster already beat LR lifetime sales and is in its way to become the best selling HD collection in Japan.

          Hopefully that huge success is enough for SQEX to bring over FFXII to Vita and PS3 as well.

  • Xaltmas

    That Vita. Hopefully it’s 2014 lineup is able to keep the momentum going.

  • MrFinalgamer

    nice sales for FFX HD. hopefully this is enough to convince them for am FFXII re-release (on vita would be nice, although i don’t know if it could fit on a vita card =/).
    sure hope the numbers are relatively the same over here so it might persuade square into FINALLY porting Type-0 to the vita (PSP release or HD, i don’t care at this point i just want the damn game)


    That Vita though.

  • Alvaro Bernedo

    @salromano Hi Sal. I think there is a mistake here.

    These are the sales for the period 12/23/13 – 12/29/13, which were unveiled just today by MC. They will publish the 12/30/13 – 1/5/14 sales tomorrow.

    Although Famitsu has already both numbers if you need them.

  • Elvick

    Poor FFX-2.

    Also, good god who doesn’t have a damn PSP by now?

    • Kurisu Makise

      10 year plan lol. FFX-2 might be doing better digitally admittedly but that’s not saying much.

  • Eder García

    WiiU still selling, nice, same with Vita, but once the FFX/X-2 hype goes away in a few weeks, Vita will go down, the 3DS is losing momentum despite ALBW is selling, very strange

  • EspadaKiller

    Those are nice numbers for FFX/X-2 HD and PS Vita. It looks like there aren’t much games to play these days for the Japanese, they would just get the older games like Pokemon and Puzzle and Dragons. In that list only Zelda and FFX/X-2 HD are the new releases. I had expected more numbers for Zelda though, it’s such a great game. =/

    The 3DS numbers on the other hand are incredible though. Wonder how would the PS4 numbers would be when it’s launched in Japan.

    • Skyer Ist

      Zelda and FFX/X-2 are both sold out in Japan in first week. And it’s pretty srandard that games like Pokemon selling for months in Japan.

      • Elvick

        Pokemon has legs everywhere. Well, not sure about Europe, but it crops up in the US charts often after release.

        • Skyer Ist

          Yeah, I know :D We discussing japanese charts here, so I said about Japan.

  • Skyer Ist

    It’s 12/23/13 – 12/29/13 sales, not 12/30/13 – 1/5/14. Zelda and FF released on 12/26. MC will publish 12/30/13 – 1/5/14 today (New Year Celebrations delayed the last week of 2013 charts; Famitsu published 5/1/1 chart yesterday: )

  • Karibito

    Actually those are the sales from the period 12/23-12/29. The first media create report for the new year was published today in 4gamer.

  • PrinceHeir

    Zelda on top!
