Just Dance 2, FIFA 12 Currently Best-Selling 2011 Titles

November 1, 2011 | By Mike Rose




Nintendo has revealed the top-selling video games in the U.S., Europe and Japan between January and September of 2011 as part of its Semi-Annual Financial Results Briefing.

The company released a series of top 20 charts, with data compiled from research firms MediaCreate, Gfk International and NPD, highlighting all releases for its Wii, DS and 3DS consoles.

In the U.S., Ubisoft's Just Dance 2 for Nintendo Wii was the top-selling game during the nine month period, followed by Pokemon White Version for Nintendo DS and Gears of War 3 for Xbox 360.

It's worth noting that, while this particular chart is single SKU results, the NPD now supplies multi-SKU.

The PS3 version of EA's FIFA 12 topped the European chart, which took into account a total of 14 European countries, including the UK, Germany and France.

Three Nintendo titles followed in positions two to four -- Wii Sports Resort, Pokemon White Version and Pokemon Black Version.

The Japanese chart was topped by Monster Hunter Portable 3rd for PSP, followed by Tales of Xillia for PS3 and Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 Professional.

The charts in full, originally found as part of Nintendo's Semi-Annual Financial Results Briefing, can be found below.
