Dragon Quest 10 tops weekly sales in Japan

Dragon Quest 10 ruled the software charts this week in Japan with 420,311 copies sold for Wii.

New Super Mario Bros. 2 for 3DS placed second at 213,863 units, nearly half.

After that, the numbers drop off significantly, with Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 for DS taking third at 51,342 and Demon Training for 3DS claiming fourth with 29,170 copies.

The 3DS topped the hardware sales, although the numbers fell as expected after the previous week's rush of 3DS XLs. Dragon Quest 10 pushed the Wii into a firm second place, although one notably lower than the 3DS's.
