Gaming Life In Japan ~ 31/3/14 – 6/4/14

Time for Gaming Life in Japan so let’s jump straight in!

Mario Party: Island Tour for the 3DS takes out the coveted top spot on the software chart with over 47K units shifted this past week. PS3 title, Samurai Warriors 4, takes out the second spot as Yokai Watch (3DS) takes the third.

Everyone’s favourite action hero, Snake, is back in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes as he takes out fourth spot with stealth. A new entry for the Wii U takes out fifth position with Just Dance Wii U. The Shonen 45th anniversary game, J-Stars Victory VS, takes 2 spots with 7 and 8 taken by the PS3 and PS Vita, respectively. Rounding out the top ten is Pro Yakyuu Spirits 2014 for the PS3. Pretty interesting to see that this week, Nintendo only has 3 titles in the top 10, different from their usual stranglehold on the software chart.

Ground Zeroes Vita 3

Looking over at the hardware chart, here’s where we can see that the various games for the PS Vita in the top 10 are having an impact on sales. The PS Vita takes the top spot this week with 25,017 units sold, down from last week’s figure but enough to take the number 1 position. The Nintendo 3DS LL is 2nd with 22,947 units shifted and PS4 third with 13,401 sold. As usual though, when you add sales on the 3DS LL and the standard 3DS, it still sells more than the PS Vita with a grand total of 32, 038 sold through.
