Pokémon X & Y Pass 1.8 Million Retail Sales to Top Japanese Charts

Monster Hunter 4 in third, Wii U hardware sales drop further

When it comes to confirming the software number one in this week's Japanese Media Create software charts, it's a predictable task. Pokémon X & Y has stormed to the top spot with over 1.8 million sales at retail, just beating the week one sales of Monster Hunter 4. Capcom's title has continued its solid momentum by coming in third place, accumulating another 110,208 physical retail sales; there are no Wii U titles in the top 20.

As expected the releases of X & Y have boosted 3DS hardware sales, with significant increases over last week. Sony's Vita saw a major bump with the release of lower priced models, but this week brings a further decrease in Wii U sales, with Nintendo's console falling below the PSP — last week's sales are in parenthesis.

3DS LL – 141,245 (85,885)
3DS – 72,325 (37,102)
PlayStation Vita – 60,166 (3,538)
PlayStation 3 – 12,395 (10,232)
PSP – 3,467 (4,093)
Wii U – 3,276 (4,001)
Wii – 703 (914)
Xbox 360 – 575 (354)

Rather grim reading for the Wii U, with The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD having little impact on hardware sales in Japan in recent weeks. The good times keep rolling for the 3DS, however, with yet more impressive sales.
