The lights are on
It turns out the Japanese are still really into Pokémon.
The list comes from Japanese gaming site 4Gamer.net, with helpful translations from Siliconera. It's always interesting to see what Japanese gamers are into compared to us over here in North America. For example, Taiko Drum Master: The Little Dragon and the Mysterious Orb sold better than Resident Evil: Revelations for 3DS. The list below contains the top 30 best selling games, and their units sold for 2012.

Pokemon makes total sense for Japanese sales, honestly. Surprised to see Kid Icarus still being on top 30 list. I really really want to add at least one statistic for the U.S.'s New Leaf sales list.
i want a NA yakuza 5 release date -_-
Well I plan on getting / already have most of the games in the top 10.
People say Japan's top games lack diversity, but just look at the U.S. Much, much less diverse than Japan, most all of them are just shooters :\
