Gaming Life In Japan ~ 06/01/14 – 12/01/14

Let’s take a look at the gaming charts in Japan for the during the first week of the new year with our Gaming Life in Japan segment!

kirby-triple-deluxe

On the software charts, the 3DS currently has the top game with new release Kirby Triple Deluxe while previous number, PazuDora Z: Puzzle & Dragons Z, is now second. And rounding up the top 3 games is another entry for Nintendo with Pokemon X / Y. Monster Hunter 4 enjoys a massive surge in sales, being pushed back to the middle number 5 spot. Meanwhile, the tail end is being represented by the PS Vita with Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster: Twin Pack in 10th positions. Full chart listings with sales info can be found below.

The hardware charts tell a different story now that that Christmas rush is all over. The Wii U is still enjoying great sales but has a reasonable slump is number, enough to fall back to 4th spot behind the PS Vita in 2nd and the PS3 in 3rd. Hopefully the Wii U can maintain some of the success it saw in the lead up to Christmas and not the very form in sales. We’ll keep a close eye on this one.
