It's Japanese Media Create charts time, as we see what's hot and what's not in Nintendo's homeland. It's another good week for Level-5 and the 3DS, with a handful of new releases on Sony hardware arriving in the top 20.

Dual release Yo-kai Watch 3: Sushi / Tempura comfortably retains top spot, albeit not quite living up to the sales power of its main series predecessors. The lead is still significant, though, while new release Sumikko Gurashi Mura wo Tsukurun Desu on 3DS grabs third place.
