Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze released in Japan on 13th February and despite coming in second in the charts, it has failed to make a significant impact.

Most selling game was Dragon Quest Monsters 2: Iru and Luca’s Wonderful Mysterious Keys of 3DS once again after two weeks of its release. The top 10 selling games include eight titles from the 3DS.
