The Media Create charts for Japan are out once again, and this week's line-up has a number of new releases - albeit not on Nintendo hardware.

It's hard to keep track of the Kingdom Hearts series, but that hasn't stopped the oddly named Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue from moving to number one on PS4. The arrival of Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony on PS Vita and PS4 has also pushed long-running 3DS sellers Pokémon Sun and Moon, Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS and Yo-kai Watch 3 down a few places, though these titles are still moving along rather well. The top 20, with lifetime sales in brackets, is below.

Moving on to hardware, numbers are dropping back to standard levels after Holiday and New Year bumps, leaving the PS4 on top. The New 3DS LL (XL) and broader 'family' are still comfortably second, while the Wii U returns to rather grim figures; results are below with last week's sales in brackets.

  1. PlayStation 4 – 39,116 (78,927)
  2. New 3DS LL – 23,212 (54,645)
  3. PlayStation Vita – 13,816 (34,023)
  4. 2DS – 9,243 (26,214)
  5. PlayStation 4 Pro – 7,887 (8,242)
  6. New 3DS – 2,091 (8,019)
  7. Wii U – 1,169 (3,147)
  8. PlayStation 3 – 701 (1,156)
  9. Xbox One – 75 (180)

The evergreen releases will fly the flag, for the most part, on behalf of Nintendo over the next month or so. It'll be interesting to see how new releases up to early March perform on 3DS, ahead of the Nintendo Switch making its mark.
