We're a little later than normal with the Media Create chart results this week, for elaborate reasons. Well, ok, we were distracted and forgot them, and the results reflect a rather unremarkable period in Japan regardless.

Dragon Quest Heroes II remains at numbers one, two and three, which is just greedy. On the plus side Kirby: Planet Robobot is still fighting the good fight with sales in five figures; in fact it's now crept past 300,000 physical retail sales in the Media Create figures, which is decent going for the platformer. Outside of that it's a quiet week due to a lack of new big-hitters.

  1. [PS4] Dragon Quest Heroes II: The Twin Kings and the Prophecy's End (Square Enix, 05/27/16) – 43,640 (228,460)

  7. 3DS – 646 (696)
  8. 3DS LL – 100 (78)
  9. Xbox One – 59 (61)

Despite the lack of headline moves we're pleased to see Kirby's latest adventure perform relatively well; are you planning to give it a try when it arrives in the West this week?
