It's Media Create Japanese charts time once again, with 3DS and Wii U facing off - as always - with Sony systems.

The software results bring new releases in the top three, once again with a dual release across Vita and PS4 (sometimes there are triple releases that also include PS3) leading the way - Gundam Breaker 3. The rather quirky Haikyuu! Cross Team Match - which we highly doubt will come to the West - secures third place, and the next release on Nintendo hardware after that is Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. In general the volume of new and popular releases on Sony hardware have pushed 3DS and Wii U titles towards the lower half of the top 20 - results below have lifetime sales in brackets.
