Surprised they didn't combine Shin Uchi to Ganso/Honke so that another title can seep into the top 10 list.

Nintendo and Level-5 certainly enjoy these software sales last year.

Yeah, Christmas ended up on a Thursday this time around, so the post-Christmas drop was nullified by the beginning of the week.

By the way hiska-kun, are you going to make a separate thread with all the data from Famitsu translated?

when was the last time a platform had 5 2-million sellers in a single year?
Not sure it ever happened.

A few weeks ago, Iwata mentionned the 3DS had 4 2-million tittles in 5 months, which is a first for the Japanese market. Not sure about 5 2-million sellers in a single year, but I think the PS1 (and maybe the DS) might have been the only console capable of pulling that sort of software sales.

next year's going to be a god damn bloodbath. is there anything on the 3ds that might be a million seller? i think it's pretty much going to be dying 3ds and struggling ps4 leading the way.
We don't know for sure as a surprise hit may come in the middle of the year to any platform. Nobody expected a big 3DS year in 2014 aside maybe from Smash 3DS until Youkai Watch fever happened, and a sudden Pokemon 2014 release.

Well... there's Youkai Watch 3, for starters :p

That Pikachu detective game could be popular too, though it's hard to say without having seen the game itself.

And probably some secret Nintendo game that is yet to be revealed.

Judging from the speed of YW releases so far, I'd say that there's no way we get through 2015 without another one. Level 5 doesn't seem like a company to let a cash cow go unmilked.

Also, I won't really be surprised if Gamefreak actually does give us a pokemon game this year of some variety. IIRC they took a year off in 2011 and 2007, and otherwise it's been annual since the ds. Anything goes at this point. Seems like they've got two teams for pokemon? So the xy team would have had two years to prep xy sequels/companion versions.

Despite the surge of Youkai Watch, the software sales are less than 90% of 2013 software sales. This issue, IMO, is much more worrying than hardware sales figures.

By the way, top 30 from last week is out on Famitsu.

Ah, thanks a bunch.

Yeah, 2006 was really something for the Nintendo DS.

What about the PS1? What's the max # of 1m games/year?

I was wondering what Agatsuma Entertainement was up to... here's the answer :p
Apparently it's an enhanced port with additional stages, better graphics and frame rate. Plus the original SFC version of Umihara Kawase is also included. The title is Sayonara Umihara Kawase Chirari and it'll be coming out on April 23, 2015.

Also, Vita is getting Hakuisei Aijou Shoukougun (&#30333;&#34915;&#24615;&#24859;&#24773;&#20381;&#23384;&#30151;), a yuri VN and sequel to Hakuisei Ren'ai Shoukougun by Kogado Studio. It'll be released in April 2015.
http://hakuai.kogado.com/

And another title for Vita, Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata (&#20916;&#12360;&#12394;&#12356;&#24444;&#22899;&#12398;&#32946;&#12390;&#12363;&#12383;), is a game based on the light novel/manga/anime but with an original story and developed by 5pb. It's scheduled for release in spring 2015.
