The sales figures do not count digital copies of Taiko 3DS2.

Once again, a portable Taiko game manages to cram into the Top 10 best-selling games on its launch week (that is, from last Thursday's release to Sunday), despite the recent period of slow sales for the gaming scene in Japan. Only three fresh releases for Sony platforms deny a podium place to Don to Katsu no Jikuu Daibouken, sitting in the fourth place.

Comparison-wise to past portable Nintendo Taiko games on a 4-day sales span, the latest title doesn't match the sales of the second Taiko videogame for Nintendo DS (55950), or even the previous entry for Nintendo 3DS (65462)! Still, it's a good initial result for the game, following suit to the positive trend of portable games in Japan. Aim to the top!

  1. For the record: This is the very first Taiko no Tatsujin with both physical and digital formats. As digital downloads are not tracked by anyone other than Nintendo and Namco themselves, it's quite hard to get the information.

    Worth noting that the market for digital copies of games is quite large in Japan, so the total could actually be much larger than 53k, possibly matching or even surpassing 3DS1. But this is just my speculation anyway.

    Even with digital factored in, Taiko 3DS2 still may not hold a top 3 opening week position; at most it may beat Kamen Rider, but the remaining two are real heavy-hitter releases.
