New Super Mario Bros. 2 Debuts With Over 400K Units Sold In Japan

Media Create sales data for the week ending July 29, 2012 shows that New Super Mario Bros. 2 topped the top 20 software sales chart with 407,503 units sold during its debut week.

Overall, it was a huge week for Nintendo in Japan with the release of the 3DS XL pushing total 3DS hardware sales up from 44K in the prior week to 229.6K (Media Create attributed 187.4K of those to the larger 3DS, which roughly jives with a Famitsu report from earlier in the week). Additionally, the Nintendo 3DS claimed a total of 7 spots in the top 20 software chart, followed by the PSP with 5, the PS3 with 3, the Wii with 3, and the Xbox 360 and DS with 1 each. In contrast Sony’s PSP sold a mere 10.8K units and failed to appear in the top 20 software charts.

The full Japanese hardware and software sales charts for the week ending July 29, 2012 are as follows:
