^Bolded items indicate Nintendo exclusives.
As a piece of additional information, Kid Icarus: Uprising sold about 83,000 copies, making it one of the top 10 SKUs of the month, just not one of the top 10 games. Since Xenoblade Chronicles was a Gamestop exclusive, no sales information was made available.
Sales are seriously down this month; the entire industry is down 32%, and software sales are down a whopping 42% compared to April 2011. There were very few new IPs, with Prototype 2 being the only big new release, and much of the Easter sales this year probably occurred in March. I’m not sure if this will be a longer-standing recession within the games industry, or if this inevitably happens closer to the end of a console generation. The excitement does feel a little less there.
