New Super Mario Bros. Wii Jumps Closer To 3 Million Sold In Japan

It's a week of no new releases charting in Japan, another week for New Super Mario Bros. Wii to dominate the competition with another quarter million plus sold. What other Nintendo games are selling like gangbusters in Japan this week?

The rest of the chart that isn't New Super Mario Bros. Wii looks like familiar stuff — Tomodachi Collection, Final Fantasy XIII, The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, Wii Fit Plus, et al. On a more exciting note, it looks like FFXIII will cross the 2 million sold mark in Japan before January ends, New Super Mario Bros. Wii passing 3 million, probably within the next five to ten minutes.

And look! It's the return of Animal Crossing DS and Wii Play to the top thirty bestselling games in Japan, according to Media Create! Those are some legs...
