Japan Charts: Donkey Kong swings its way to the #2 spot

ImageThe Japanese charts sales for software and hardware are now in, coming from Media Crate Sales tracking. Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze released on 2/13 (a Thursday) and managed to sell 35,717 units through retail. The game had 3 days of accounted sales during that period. Donkey Kong didn’t do very well, neither did Super Mario 3D World, which sold about 99,000 copies in its first week. The lowest for any 3D Mario game. The number one spot belonged to Dragon Quest Monsters 2: Iru and Luca’s Wonderful Mysterious Keys, entered its 2nd week of release and had nearly sold 600K copies. The top 10 consisted of 9 Nintendo titles (8 3DS, 1 Wii U) and 1 Playstation title, which was Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme VS. Full Boost by Namco at #9.
