It's Media Create Japanese charts time, and this week's result bring good news for Sony in particular, with new releases serving PlayStation systems well; for Nintendo it's a case of steady sales for older releases.

In the software chart we have Capcom's Resident Evil 7: Biohazard leading the way on PS4, with Uta no Prince-sama Repeat Love following behind on Vita. Pokémon Sun and Moon continue to perform rather well in third place considering the fact over three million physical retail copies have previously shipped, while the underwhelming sales for Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World continue, though it has gone past the 50,000 unit landmark. The top 20 is below with lifetime sales in brackets.
