Three major Japanese-developed games came out in North America in June: one of which performed really well, the other two ... not so much. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
showed up at #5 on the software top ten chart yesterday. Nintendo subsequently announced that it sold "more than 283,000 units," making it the second best-selling game on a single platform, right behind Infamous 2
. It's the first 3DS exclusive to chart on the top ten.
Meanwhile, two games weirder than Zelda
attracted far more exclusive
audiences. Child of Eden,
the NPD told Joystiq, sold approximately 34,000 units in its debut month, ranking at number 83. At the same time, Shadows of the Damned
managed to sell 24,000 copies, combined, on PS3 and Xbox 360. Damn
