The Japanese weekly sales charts ending on May 11 reveal 14 of the top 20 spots have been overtaken by various 3DS games, including Mario Golf: World Tour, Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call, and Kirby: Triple Deluxe.
Yo-kai Watch dominates the chart, a 3DS RPG about a young boy named Keita who comes into possession of a magical watch that can identify ghosts. Level-5 has expressed interest in bringing this to Western gamers, having reached out to test the waters for any potential interest in the game. Given its fantastic sales in Japan, it looks like a game I'd definitely like to see over here.
Style Savvy: Trendsetters, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Pokémon X/Y, and Mario Party: Island Tour also round out the rest of the 3DS titles basking in the spotlight of the top 20. There's also Fossil Fighters: Infinite Gear, which looks like a strange mixture of Digimon and dinosaurs. Has anyone played that?
With such an awesome library of handheld titles for the 3DS, it's not surprising to see the weekly software sales revealing these kinds of numbers. And you should definitely play Style Savvy: Trendsetters. You need to.
