Animals Cross Big in Japan

Leading up to Animal Crossing: Wild World’s release, the Japanese public had made more than 400,000 pre-orders for the community sim. Now, a week since its release, more than 300,000 DS users have picked up the game. Becoming one of the fastest-selling DS games in Japan, Animal Crossing has eclipsed first week numbers for both Jump! Superstars (50,000) and Nintendogs (135,000). As a result of this smash debut, lots of Japanese shops are claiming to be sold out of DS systems.
