Gaming Life In Japan ~ 18/8/14 – 24/8/14

Late again but here’s last week’s sales figures straight from Japan!

The top spot was taken once again by Yokai Watch 2: Ganso / Honke for the Nintendo 3DS while a new entry for the PS4 takes second place. That game is The Last Of Us, the remastered version.

The PS Vita enjoys a new game in third spot with Bullet GirlsDiablo III: Reaper of Souls Ultimate Evil Edition for the PS4 and the PS3 took out positions four and five, another new release with a Playstation one-two attack! The Wii U is enjoying some success with Hyrule Warriors in sixth place while Yoshi’s New Island for the 3DS sits in seventh. Mario Kart 8 is still hanging around in ninth as Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission 2 for the 3DS rounds out the top ten. Bit of a mixed bag last week for the charts with no real domination by any company.

Having a look at hardware sales, the unbeatable 3DS is still the hardware king in Japan with 28,788 units sold last week.

Sony’s PS Vita took second place with 15,309 units shifted while 8,985 units sold was enough to see the Wii U take third place. It’s as if the Wii U and the PS4 have swapped places with 5,923 units sold for the PS4 enough to land it in fifth place.
