Japan’s 30 Best Selling Games, Christmas Week

Enterbrain has released the Japanese software sales for the week leading up to Christmas, which is the busiest sales week of the year, even in Japan. Below, we see Nintendo continuing to roll up the competition and smoke it, with the top 30 containing six 3DS games, 13 Wii games, and three titles for the original DS. I suppose the Wii's miraculous December just goes to show the power of having a huge install base and a price that reflects the system's age. After the dropoff and so-so year it was having up until about November, who the heck would have seen this coming? Here's the top 30:

1. (3DS) Mario Kart 7
