It's the middle of the week, which means it's Media Create results time, showing us what's hot and what's not in Japan. The results show key releases on Sony hardware having an impact, while one new arrival on 3DS does its best to compete.

Kan Colle Kai has started strongly on Vita, while Attack on Titan has also sold decent numbers across three Sony platforms. Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games has mades its debut in 5th place just behind Street Fighter V; the launch sales of the equivalent 2012 Olympics game on 3DS totalled 43,155 units, so the new entry is only a smidge behind its predecessor with 41,736 sales. There are more evergreen releases on Nintendo hardware further down, but ultimately the charts are dominated by newcomers; results are below with lifetime sales in brackets.

  2. PlayStation Vita – 22,191 (17,104)

  7. PlayStation 3 – 1,665 (1,633)
  8. 3DS LL – 569 (452)
  9. Xbox One – 162 (101)

Not exactly an exceptional week for Nintendo, though Mario & Sonic's latest athletic showdown has put in a solid if unremarkable performance.
