The Japanese Media Create chart results are out, and this week they have some interesting new entries that have also driving significant hardware sales.

Starting with software, Final Fantasy XV is the undisputed champion of the week, racking up 690,471 sales on PS4. Pokémon Sun and Moon are still moving along well, shifting another 223,051 units at physical retail in their third week; this takes the lifetime total past two million in the Media Create figures. Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS is another notable arrival, landing in third with 162,180 sales; intriguingly, this is a better launch that that enjoyed by the original Super Mario Maker on Wii U, which sold 138,241 units in its first week. The 3DS has a far larger userbase, of course, while the importance of portable gaming (and the value of ports like this) is arguably more significant in Japan than in the West.

Elsewhere we have All Kamen Rider: Rider Revolution in 5th place on 3DS, while Digimon Universe: Apply Monsters made a modest debut down in 11th. Results are below with lifetime sales in brackets.
