News: Kingdom Hearts 3D Reigns in Japan
Posted 04 Apr 2012 at 16:12 by Aaron Clegg
Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance makes a comfortable debut at the top of the chart...
Another week, another big 3DS game that begins with K hits Japan (wait, what?) This time it was the turn of Square-Enix's long-awaited Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance.
The game opened with a much higher total than its nearest rivals, although fell somewhat short of previous iterations on the series - perhaps hampered by the youth of the 3DS platform.
Further down the table, Kid Icarus Uprising takes a moderate drop in its second week, although it will be interesting to see whether it can settle down at a respectable number. Also of note is Konami's PS Vita remake of the fan-favourite Wii gem Little King's Story, which managed a, well, mild debut.
Here's the software chart for the week of March 26th to April 1st.

With consecutive big releases, there's only one way up for the 3DS hardware. A rather tasty system bundle for Kingdom Hearts meant the handheld reached a particularly high sum this week.
