As promised, here the next weekly instalment of Gaming Life in Japan, where we sit down and examine the Japanese gaming sales charts to see what’s been shaking things up.
The latest game sending everyone into a frenzy for the 3DS, as last week, is still holding the fort in the number 1 position, Disney Magic Castle: My Happy Life. The rest of the top 10 is made up of an astounding 7 titles for the Nintendo 3DS ranging from Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies to Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Yokai Watch and more.
The hardware side of things shows no difference with the Nintendo 3DS absolutely dominating the number 1 spot with its continuing stranglehold. Sales for the 3DS LL are considerably down from last week while the regular 3DS saw an increase in sales. The PS Vita takes the 3rd spot selling only a handful less than last week which is a good sign for Sony while the Wii U continues to lag in sales with numbers dipping under 10k sales this time around.
