Yoshi's Crafted World released late in March and couldn't enter the chart with only 4 copies being registered.

April has no new first party game at retail, but the digital-only BOXBOY! + BOXGIRL! might garner some attention.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
