Wii Sports Resort sells over 350,000 in four days

Sequel becomes third fastest-selling Wii game to be released in region

Wii Sports Resort has sold 353,827 units in its first four days on sale in Japan. The Nintendo game, which comes bundled with the new Wii MotionPlus add-on, was released on June 25.

The sales figures, reported by Famitsu and translated by Kotaku, put the game just behind Mario Kart Wii and Super Smash Bros Brawl which shifted 608,000 and 816,000 units respectively during the same period, making it the third fastest-selling Wii game in the region.

Wii Sports Resort - Nintendo's long-expected follow-up to Wii Sports - was announced at E3 last year. It will be released in the West in late July.
