Today is clearly "Gosh-look-how-well-the-DS-is-doing" day here at CVG. We've already covered that impressive global 13.5 million units shifted figure and now word has reached us of this week's Japanese sales charts. Put it this way: Nintendo's accountant are probably rubbing their hands with glee, as the handheld claims 8 of the 10 top spots, leaving all other consoles in its wake.
Claiming pole position is Nintendo's Brain Training 2, which made its debut in the charts, selling an amazing 414,556 copies in just one week. At number two and three respectively, Animal Crossing DS has cleared a million copies with Mario Kart DS also fast approaching the magic one million marker.
