It's Media Create charts time for Japan once again, and this week brings some smaller new releases and some modest (but still welcome) gains for Nintendo hardware.

The big winner this week is Kamen Rider: Battride War Genesis, which claimed top spot on PS4 along with 3rd and 4th on Vita and PS3. The retail release of Mega Man Legacy Collection on 3DS has done relatively well to debut in second place, and the only other game on Nintendo hardware in the top 10 is Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games in 6th place on 3DS. Ultimately Nintendo's evergreen releases continue to be pushed out by newer games on rival systems, with not enough new titles currently arriving to break into the top 10; results are below with lifetime sales in brackets.

  20. [3DS] Yo-kai Watch Busters: Red Cat Team / White Dog Squad (Level-5, 07/11/15) – 6,345 (2,217,048)

The hardware news is relatively pleasing. The 3DS 'family' is still second overall (with the 3DS LL / XL in third place on its own), and these results show all but the original LL model gaining sales. The Wii U had a small recovery, too, moving up to fourth in the process. Results are below with last week's sales in brackets.

  1. PlayStation 4 – 26,502 (29,363)
  2. PlayStation Vita – 17,368 (22,191)
  3. New 3DS LL – 17,257 (16,533)
  4. Wii U – 5,392 (3,902)
  5. New 3DS – 4,944 (4,363)
  6. 3DS – 2,694 (2,427)
  7. PlayStation 3 – 1,493 (1,665)
  8. 3DS LL – 550 (569)
  9. Xbox One – 60 (162)

A relatively quiet week, all told, though hardware sales are holding momentum nevertheless.
