Media Create Japanese Hardware Sales for week ending April 21st: 3DS XL sales double

Written by: / / No Comments

There’s not much change on the latest Media Create hardware chart week-over-week apart from 3DS XL sales getting a massive boost due to the release of the 3DS-exclusive Tomodachi Collection: New Life and its limited edition hardware bundle on April 18th. Sales of the 3DS XL more than doubled as a result – proving that nothing sells Nintendo systems faster than a popular new exclusive from the platform holder.
