Nintendo's long-anticipated Super Mario 3D Land
for 3DS topped the Japanese weekly software sales charts last week, selling over 300,000 units in its opening weekend.
For the week ended November 6, data from tracking firm Media Create, and as reported by
NeoGAF, shows that the latest Mario
release racked up a total of 343,492 sales.
Other big new releases were left to take up position behind it. Sony's Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception

was forced back to number three.
Konami's World Soccer Winning Eleven 2012
launched last week, with the PSP version the strongest seller, settling in at position six. The PS2 version even managed to enter the charts at number 15 -- the first time we've seen a PS2 title in the charts in a very long while.
The latest in the Dragon Quest
franchise, Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime 3
on Nintendo 3DS, landed at number seven, while Alchemist's Nicola Kanshuu: Model Oshare Audition 2
crawled into the charts at number 20.
Last week's number one, Final Fantasy Type-0
