DS Lite

Famitsu recently compiled a list of the Top 100 best selling DS games in Japan as of November 12, 2006, and Cubed3 has the entire list up. Now, admittedly, I haven't heard of a lot of these titles, but the positions of certain games in this list will probably surprise you. The top ten in the list should come as no surprise to anyone, however:

1) More Brain Training (Nintendo) - 3,417,956
2) New Super Mario Bros. (Nintendo) - 3,351,234
3) Animal Crossing: Wild World (Nintendo) - 3,335,195
4) Pokémon Diamond / Pearl (Nintendo) - 3,060,032
5) Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training (Nintendo) - 2,837,394
6) Mario Kart DS (Nintendo) - 1,626,242
7) English Training (Nintendo) - 1,408,243
8) Nintendogs (Nintendo) - 1,335,185
9) Big Brain Academy (Nintendo) - 1,299,188
10) Tamagotchi Connection: Corner Shop (Bandai) - 1,110,046

Wait, I take that back. English Training? I didn't think the Japanese cared that much about the language. Or maybe they just decided to bite the bullet and take more of an interest in it, seeing as how almost every other major country uses it to some extent. And I won't even pretend I've heard of Tamagotchi Connection.

Hit the jump for the rest.
