01./02. [WIU] Super Mario Maker # <ACT> (Nintendo) {2015.09.10} (¥6.156) - 52.396 / 245.182

Very solid hold for SMM on MC numbers! Probably the bundle and the holiday week helped.

02./01. [3DS] Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon <RPG> (Nintendo) {2015.09.17} (¥5.076) - 44.555 / 196.379

Meh numbers to me.

05./07. [3DS] Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer # <ETC> (Nintendo) {2015.07.30} (¥4.320) - 21.785 / 1.050.673

06./08. [WIU] Splatoon <ACT> (Nintendo) {2015.05.28} (¥6.156) - 20.736 / 681.495

Tentacles still alive!

Nice Wii U hold too, while 3DS...is going to be shattered in that (decent so far) YoY comparison starting from next week. PS4 contracting, ready to boom with the price cut.

Surprised even that many bought a PS4 considering the price drop.
Another 4000 uninformed customers. However IIRC there were 4000 customers who bought 3DS too right before whopping $100 price drop, so I shouldn't be surprised I guess.

Those seem like decent figures? 50K units sold combined would be good for this kind of game right?

Why didn't they just make that cut immediate? Especially with continued success of splatoon and MM coming.

Splatoon (and a bit of Mario Maker) managed to make Wii U hardware have better sales this year than last year (YTD). Splatoon beating Mario Kart 8 not only in software sales but also as a system seller. Who would have thought?

Seems like a pretty reasonable drop. Just eyeballing it, but I assume it's in the 65% range from looking at the weekly vs LTD. That's not bad for a second week of a big release. Yokai Watch Busters has been very impressive.
It was a holiday week, though. It would have been normal for it to drop a little less than a usual second week drop, especially for a kids oriented franchise.

As much as I love how Nintendo can be rewarded for their efforts with "bread and butter" games like Mario Kart 8, it's nice that a new potential franchise can rise up as well. Bodes well for the future. Hopefully Nintendo takes notes and finds ways to keep their releases "fresh" with a mix of new and familiar.

Wonder where the other 45k copies of Utawarerumono went. Some shipped, absolutely, but digital must be doing alright as well.

Slight underperformance from Moero Crystal compared to Chronicle, bet it's still making loads of money for CH though.

Witch & Hundred Knight kinda underperformed, although I dunno really. They're pushing the series on PS4, doesn't look great for a port, but I guess it was more for the west anyway.

Vita and WiiU hardware very nice!

Don't forget, Pokémon may be a "kids orientated franchise" (which I take exception to and could write an essay on how wrong you are), but this is still a Mystery Dungeon game. Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games are the best selling of them and they are not for everyone.

This is on par with how the previous ones did, except the first ones.

18./00. [PS4] Saint Seiya: Soldiers' Soul <ACT> (Bandai Namco Games) (¥7.690) - 6.938 / NEW
I know that Saint Seiya isn't a huge franchise this days, but...
Well, it probably will sell ten times that in some parts of Europe and Latin America
