Japanthusiast: Dark Moon Proves Japan Are Celebrating Year of Luigi

Having released nearly a month ago, most would expect the sales of Lugi’s Mansion Dark Moon to have slowed by now, but that is certainly not the case…

As you can see from the Top 20 below, Luigi has kept his grasp on the top spot this week, with an impressive 68,000 units moved. Animal Crossing takes second place with nearly 50,000 as well pushing it over the three million mark, and that doesn\’t even take into account digital sales! Nintendo truly have a hit on their hands I\’m sure they want to replicate when the game releases over seas later this year…
