Nintendo's hugely popular monster breeding and battling game is the fifth Nintendo DS title to sell in excess of 5 million copies in the region, alongside games such as New Super Mario Bros. and Nintendogs, but has done so faster than any other game to date.

Capcom's PSP title Monster Hunter Portable 3rd followed in the end of year chart, with 3,480,989 copies sold.
