DS software extremely well-represented in 2007 Japanese sales


Japanese site has compiled a list of the 500 highest-selling games in Japan (according to Media Create numbers), and, as would be expected of a video game thing related to Japan, the DS shows up a lot. 215 times, in fact.

What was the top-selling DS game of 2007? No, not Brain Age 2. Newer, and slightly more game-like. That's right, it was Mario Party DS, which was also #4 overall in sales. We knew it was getting crazy sales, but we didn't realize that it was doing that well. Also a surprise though it shouldn't have been: Dragon Quest IV, which was the fourth highest-selling DS game and the overall eighth best-selling game. We've compiled the top 10 DS games and placed them after the break, but we encourage you to have a look at the whole list!
