Nintendo's Mii Collecting Game Still A Big Hit In Japan

When Nintendo describes its software as "evergreen," it means games like the Nintendo DS title Tomodachi Collection, which was released mid-June and sits atop this week's Japanese software sales chart.

The Mii collecting game beats out DS rival Dragon Quest IX to secure the top spot once again amid a non-eventful release week. Stuff like Melty Blood: Actress Again and Ookami Kakushi manage to sell well enough to make an appearance in Media Create's weekly top ten, but not well enough to defeat bestsellers like Monster Hunter 3 for the Wii.
