Wow, Wii play is a lot lower than I thought it would be based on the Famitsu numbers we saw. Hmmmm. And ... Lair?! Okay.

EDIT: I see the NDS Wii Sports on there now. That is a little more like it.

Wii Sports being out of the top 30 is shocking. Mario Kart DS' legs are sickening. Who'd have guessed it'd be the top-selling catalog title at this point in time?

Ahh, looks like Cheese made a mistake and labeled Wii Sports NDS.

I have to say again that the big surprise for me is how well Kyotaro Nishimura Mystety launched. Compared not only to Tecmo's other franchises (even the top flagship ones), but also compared to other text/graphical adventure games... it's really damned impressive.

Some adventure comparisons:
Code:
Trace Memory		NDS	48,357
Hotel Dusk		NDS	61,336
Phoenix Wright		GBA  	23,911
Phoenix Wright DS	NDS 	50,469
Project Hacker		NDS	33,199
And comparisons to other Tecmo first week sales:
Code:
Ninja Gaiden		XBX	39,935
Ninja Gaiden Black	XBX	3,886
Ninja Gaiden Sigma	PS3	40,886
Dead or Alive		SAT  	92,086
Dead or Alive		PSX 	59,461 
Dead or Alive 2		PS2 	158,506
Dead or Alive 2		DC 	99,054
Dead or Alive 3		XBX 	84,471
Dead or Alive Ultimate	XBX 	52,401
Dead or Alive 4		360 	62,603
DoA X			XBX 	88,230
DoA X2			360 	45,065
Deception		PSX  	38,489
Kagero: Deception 2	PSX 	65,380
Deception 3		PSX 	39,958
Trapt			PS2 	63,461
Gallop Racer 1		PSX  	24,679
Gallop Racer 2		PSX 	77,152
Gallop Racer 3		PSX 	90,585
Gallop Racer 4		PSX 	53,917
Gallop Racer 5		PS2 	34,041
Gallop Racer 6		PS2 	49,071
Gallop Racer 7		PS2 	32,528
Gallop Racer 8		PS2 	37,512
If this game is actually good, and Tecmo nurtures it properly, they could have a really killer new franchise on their hands.


Please note: if my chart is misaligned, remember -- DON'T BLAME ME, BLAME YOURSELF OR GOD IE!

LAIR IN THE TOP TEN??!?

Wow... Japanese PS3 owners must be really desperate to try and justify their purchase.
Just like they keep buying horrible Gundam games to justify their PS2 purchase... or maybe Japanese gamers just have different tastes than you or I.

What is this detective game and is it coming to the US?
It's an adventure game written by a Japanese mystery author. And probably not.

And I guess that ASH is a bomb
We knew that last week.

I doubt Crisis Core will hit a million now.

Pity really.
Yeah... that's been apparent for weeks now, though.

Lair got 33/40 in Famitsu (same score as PGR4 actually) tho so this could be why it sold pretty good (good is relative, but 22k for Lair and in Japan isnt what i would call too bad :)).
