Dynasty Warriors 7 and 3DS Top the Charts Again

Most of last week's major releases were cancelled following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that Media Create's sales chart covering last week is pretty uneventful.

Most of last week's major releases were cancelled following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that Media Create's sales chart covering last week is pretty uneventful.

The top three remained the same as the week prior, with Dynasty Warriors 7 at top, and Dissidia Duodecim Final Fantasy and 3DS Professor Layton following.

There were just a handful of new releases over the week (see our recent releases list here). Of these, Konami's Powerful Golf, a DS golf game from the makers of the Power Pro series of big-headed baseball games, did best, at 9th place. PSP's Hanaoni Koi Hajimeru Kaku Eikyuu no In came in at 10th.

Down at 18th was the first post launch 3DS title to debut in the top 20: Ubisoft's Splinter Cell 3D.

Here's the full software chart covering 3/14 to 3/20, as passed along today at 4Gamer. Sales data includes publisher name, release date, this week's sales and life to date sales.

In hardware, 3DS sales continued to slow. It's unclear how much of this was just the system losing its launch momentum and how much of it was related to a post earthquake slowdown.
