Nintendo games dominate 2011 global sales charts

Firstparty Wii and DS games feature prominently on lists of the top 20 selling titles in Europe, the US and Japan between January and September 2011.

As part of its highly disappointing financial results briefing earlier this week, Nintendo published sales charts for the three regions based on data collected from retail monitors GfK International, the NPD Group and Media Create.

FIFA 12, Just Dance 2 and Monster Hunter Portable 3rd placed at number one in Europe, the States and Japan respectively during the nine month period, with 17 Nintendo titles making the cut across the three charts.
