Japan’s Dragon Quest craze continues as evidenced by the latest Media Create software chart which sees Dragon Quest Monsters 2 sell over 440 000 copies on debut. This 3DS exclusive is a remake of two Game Boy Color titles released in 2001 - Dragon Quest Monsters 2: Ruka’s Journey and Dragon Quest Monsters 2: Iru’s Adventure.

Sega’s Puyo Puyo Tetris was released on all major platforms but only its 3DS version managed to make the top ten. Another noteworthy entry on this week’s chart is the PS Vita version of Terraria which slotted in at seventh place on debut and clearly benefited from the game’s positive reception on PS3.

Here are the ten best-selling titles during the past week:

  • [NEW] Dragon Quest Monsters 2 (Square Enix) – 3DS – 443 656
  • [NEW] Puyo Puyo Tetris (Sega) – 3DS – 44 627
