I think people constantly get screwed up by the fact trackers separated the first entries due to split in platforms.

On their second weeks:

[GBA] Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team (Nintendo) {2005.11.17} - 58,112 / 179,306
[DS] Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Blue Rescue Team (Nintendo) {2005.11.17} - 60,141 / 194,917
Combined the total was 118,253 and a LTD point of 374,223.

Tracking switched to combined totals thanks to being on one platform for the second entry:

[DS] Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Time/Darkness (Nintendo) {2007.09.13} - 176,189 / 759,902

Later Nintendo released a third, yet similar, title to the second entries (similar to Yellow/Crystal/Emerald/Diamond to the main series):

[DS] Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of the Sky (Nintendo) {2009.04.18} - 56,160 / 198,424

So this means that Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Magnagate and the Infinite Dungeon for 3DS is currently tracking 205,881 units behind the original titles, 591,560 units behind the second entries, and 30,082 behind the third spin-off title.

Points to note are,
- Original titles had not seen a main series release in 14 months (with Emerald being released a year prior), and were released at the start of DS big holiday boom (Wild World and Mario Kart DS released in same time frame).
- Second entries had not seen a main series release in 12 months (with Diamond/Pearl being released a year prior). They were also released earlier (September vs. November) and yet still managed to hold legs to recognize holiday sales of that year.
- Third entries saw a main series release 5 months ago (with Pokemon Black 2/White 2 being released in June).

But in conclusion Pokemon Mystery Dungeon is NOT doing well.

Totori sales seem good, since it's just a slightly enhanced port.
Fate did better than I'd expect.

What do people think about the SRW OG sales? Seems like the previous title did 330k FW on PS2.

I'm pretty sure all Nintendo games get eshop releases now, doubt it would've sold much on there though

Overall, these Robot Wars games haven't been selling as well as they did in the past. Not only from PS2 to PSP/PS3, but even DS and Wii entries have sold less than the GBA and GC ones, respectively. (I have no idea about the importance of each title, so it's possible the newer ones were lesser games or something.)

03./01. [3DS] Animal Crossing: New Leaf # <ETC> (Nintendo) {2012.11.08} (4.800) - 118.898 / 1.393.824 (-50%)

It's still mega supply-constrained, Nintendo had better have ready a new huge shipment for the last two weeks of the year.

The difference between Vita and 360 sales is about 10k units this week, although it's been as low as 5k (and - rarely - much much higher). I'd say there's about a year before the beams cross, there.

Perhaps a more interesting question would be whether the Vita can surpass the 360 before the followup is released in Japan.

Well Nintendo did say they have a bit of trouble manufacturing the carts and encouraged people to buy digital while supply is low.

So playing the game by its release order is also playing the game by the sales number!

Maybe just series decline(spin off series not pokemon in general) as many ips that started in the DS era are experiencing. Also to note there's only one version of the game. The game is selling on par to the individual sales when the two versions aren't combined but I don't think that's a major reason.

very strange, considering how well it performed. I mean: it it the best debut on the Wii, in the actual Wii situation. How many copies they (Namco and retailers) expected to sell?
Btw, Taiko usually also has very good legs, probably it will be able to continue selling during the holidays.

Here's what I would think,

1.) Released too close to a main franchise title. People are not as hungry for a Pokemon outing right now, especially considering Black 2/White 2 are still on the charts (all bit at the bottom).

2.) I think duckroll mentioned in last weeks thread that dungeon crawler genre as a whole as begun to shrink. I'm not familiar enough with other titles in the genre, but he brought up some examples.

3.) Series fatigue. Like I mentioned earlier in the thread, the Ranger and Mystery Dungeon games can only go on for so long to when consumers say, "What's the point?" The beauty of the Pokemon spin-off titles is their ability to expand into almost any genre, why are we seeing sequels to action/RPG hybrids of the main franchise?

I really doubt supply issues or waiting on an expansion (I wouldn't even think this would get an expansion) are the culprits. I really hope this is the beginning of the end for this series.

I expect the same success of the 3DS more or less for the wiiU, at least in the japan. The console has a perfect fit for the hotaku people, japanese seem appreciate more this kind of 'innovation'. Probably Nintendo will be saved again to his country. I see the world slice in US for Microsoft, EU sony & Japan Nintendo in the next future.

They must have shipped around 200,000 units since Famitsu has it with a sell-through between 51% and 75% (a figure in the low 50's is the most likely scenario).

First week shipment (with sell-through percentage) for other Wii Taiko no Tatsujin titles:

[Wii] Taiko no Tatsujin Wii (Namco Bandai Games) {2008.12.11} - (82.60%) 128,000 units shipped.
[Wii] Taiko Drum Master Wii 2 (Namco Bandai Games) {2009.11.19} - (11.60%) 244,000 units shipped.
[Wii] Taiko no Tatsujin Wii 3 generations of party together! (Namco Bandai Games) {2010.12.02} - (19,30%) 152,000 units shipped.
[Wii] Taiko Drum Master Wii: Definitive Edition! (Namco Bandai Games) {2011.11.23} - (21.97%) 146,000 units shipped.
