Etrian Mystery Dungeon

After a dominant début for Dragon Quest Heroes in its first week on PS3 and PS4 in Japan, the latest Media Create results bring a new 3DS release into the reckoning, even if it can't seize top-spot; hardware, meanwhile, remains steady for another week.

New in the software charts is Etrian Mystery Dungeon, the crossover RPG from Atlus that incorporates elements from both named franchises - its début is solid, albeit not enough to claim number one status. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D is still doing reasonably well, though the long-delayed localisation of LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins has only had a modest start. The results are below, with lifetime sales in brackets.

In the hardware stakes Sony's PS4 sales have declined after last week's major boost, but still keep it ahead of the New Nintendo 3DS LL (XL) - Nintendo's larger portable is back up to second place despite a drop, while combining the whole 3DS 'family' would see it just take the top spot. The Wii U saw a modest increase, for its part; results are below with last week's sales in brackets.

  1. PlayStation 4 – 33,753 (46,139)
  2. New 3DS LL – 21,402 (22,620)
  3. PlayStation Vita – 19,757 (23,619)
  4. New 3DS – 7,661 (8,515)
  5. PlayStation 3 – 7,645 (8,926)
  6. Wii U – 7,379 (6,606)
  7. 3DS – 2,566 (2,795)
  8. 3DS LL – 2,321 (2,666)
  9. PlayStation Vita TV – 621 (838)
  10. Xbox One – 445 (703)

Overall these are reasonable results for Nintendo and Atlus, though plenty of bigger battles await throughout the rest of 2015.
