Nintendo Dominates Japan with Festive Sales on Nintendo gaming news, videos and discussion

The latest sales from Japan reveal a strong festive performance for both Wii U and 3DS for the week ending 22nd December.

It was truly a bumper Nintendo season in the run-up to Christmas, with a majority of the software charts dominated by the 3DS, together with a continually strong output for Super Mario 3D World.

Puzzle & Dragons Z lead the charge in first place, followed by Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, Super Mario 3D World and Monster Hunter 4. Past entries Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Tomodachi Collection: New Life jumped back up the charts into the top ten, together with the continually successful Monster Hunter 4.

As for hardware, the Wii U is back on form with a massive jump from the dire few months its been having, with 109,113 sold during the week. The Nintendo 3DS XL (LL) sold 164,078 units, with 68,522 new Nintendo 3DS owners made.

Can the Nintendo Wii U continue the momentum into 2014?
