[Japan] Mario Kart 7 sells lots, revitalizes 3DS sales

Posted on December 6, 2011 - 5:00pm by Andrej

Famitsu reports that Mario Kart 7, the latest gas-fueled fun-racing romp through the Mushroom Kingdom has sold over 452,000 units in its first week in Japan - and it wasn't even a full week, just 4 days (Dec 1st - Dec 4th.): This makes it the most successful 3DS game yet. But that's not all: Mario and his crew have apparently revitalized interest in the 3DS, as weekly sales have risen to levels unseen since the price drop in August. Take a look at this chart showing weekly 3DS sales: (taken from Famitsu, translated by yours truly)

Quite impressive. See Nintendo? All you need is games.
