2DS Japan Yo-kai.png

It's Japanese chart time again, and the results this week include a notable release on Sony hardware and some modest results from Nintendo's perspective.

Starting with software we have Utawarerumono: The Two Hakuoros leading the way on Vita, with PS4 and PS3 versions also in the top 10. The highest placed game on Nintendo hardware is Yo-kai Watch 3 in fourth, while Minecraft: Wii U Edition is the only title in the top 10 for the big N's home console. One Piece: Great Pirate Colosseum on 3DS has made a modest debut, meanwhile, only just squeaking past 9,000 units. You can see the top 20 below with lifetime sales in brackets.

Following the release in last week's results of the 'slim' PS4 model, Sony's iterated system saw sales nearly half but remain a long way ahead of rivals, making up ground from some poor pre-Slim sales. The New 3DS LL (XL) is performing reasonably well, and the 2DS is still shifting decent numbers in its second week since the recent 're-launch' in Japan.

  1. PlayStation 4 – 49,652 (96,433)
  2. New 3DS LL – 15,491 (15,808)
  3. 2DS – 14,492 (18,754)
  4. PlayStation Vita – 9,817 (12,931)
  5. New 3DS – 3,379 (3,047)
  6. Wii U – 2,731 (2,703)
  7. PlayStation 3 – 1,105 (1,099)
  8. 3DS – 462 (425)
  9. Xbox One – 124 (156)
  10. 3DS LL – 74 (106)

All told, it was a better week for games on Sony hardware than for Nintendo's systems, though the New 3DS LL and 2DS are still shifting decent numbers in Japan.
