Tomodachi Collection still on top in Japan

Minecraft Xbox 360 sells 5,000 copies in its debut week

Nintendo's Tomodachi Collection: New Life continued to sell strongly in Japan last week, holding the top spot for the second week in the face of virtually no competition.

According to data from Media Create, translated by Gematsu, Tomodachi Collection: New Life sold nearly 47,000 copies in the week ended June 9, 2013. The 3DS exclusive has shown surprising resilience since its release in April, losing only 10,000 sales from its levels a month ago.

However, there was very little threat from any competitors. The only other game to enter the top 20 chart was Minecraft: Xbox 360 edition, which sold less than 5,000 units.

The hardware chart remained stagnant, with all formats losing sales and the 3DS XL still firmly on top.
