It's Media Create Japanese charts time once again, and this week includes a few new releases competing for top spot, including one from Nintendo and Good-Feel.

In the software chart it's Gravity Rush 2 on PS4 that leads the way; Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World on the 3DS made its debut in second place. Its sales number of 39,555 is an improvement on the launch of the Wii U original, which managed 31,158 units in Japan when it launch back in 2015. It's not a bad launch for the portable version, as such, but nevertheless the opening sales aren't exactly mind-blowing. We've enjoyed our time with it so far and rather wish it had started much stronger on its Japanese launch; results are below with lifetime sales in brackets.

  1. [PS4] Gravity Rush 2 (SIE, 01/19/17) – 74,361 (New)

  20. [PS4] Watch Dogs 2 (Ubisoft, 12/01/16) – 3,037 (105,648)

Moving on to hardware we see declines across the board, with the festive and early New Year bumps continuing to subside. The New 3DS LL (XL) is still in second place, while sadly the Wii U drops down below 1000 sales; results below have last week's figures in brackets.

  1. PlayStation 4 – 26,243 (39,116)
  2. New 3DS LL – 18,229 (23,212)
  3. PlayStation Vita – 11,521 (13,816)
  4. PlayStation 4 Pro – 7,133 (7,887)
  5. 2DS – 6,203 (9,243)
  6. New 3DS – 1,625 (2,091)
  7. Wii U – 794 (1,169)
  8. PlayStation 3 – 557 (701)
  9. Xbox One – 35 (75)

A decent if unremarkable week for Nintendo, we'd suggest; we'll see how Poochy and Yoshi's momentum holds up next week.
