Japan’s love of Momotaro Dentetsu: Showa, Heisei, Reiwa mo Teiban! hasn’t faded yet. It gained notoriety around here for beating the likes of Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, for goodness sake! And it’s Japan-exclusive, meaning we don’t even get to see what the fuss is about.

If you’ve been following this tale like us, it won’t surprise you to learn that the latest entry in the Momotaro Dentetsu series has now passed 3.5 million sales, which is a huge milestone.

Despite being out for a year and a half, it’s just lovely to see something like this break records. To give even more context, the game passed the 3 million mark last summer, and it also ended the year as the third best-selling game in Japan in 2021. The only two games that beat it were Monster Hunter Rise and Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. That’s ridiculous.

We’d love to see it here in the west and experience this lovable train simulator board game.

Would you like to see this hugely popular series here in the west? Let us know in the comments.
