Gaming Life in Japan ~ 14/7/14 – 20/7/14

Here we go again…let’s see what’s selling overseas with Gaming Life in Japan!

Yokai Watch 2: Ganso / Honke has climbed back up the charts and reclaimed the top spot on the software chart.

A new entry for the PS Vita from SCEJ, Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines, takes second spot while Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea from Gust for the PS3 takes third. That’s also a new entry into the Japanese chart. Bandai Namco sees a new title enter in fourth spot for the 3DS, that game being Gundam Try Age SP. No more new entries after that with Mario Kart 8 and Yokai Watch taking fifth and sixth spots, respectively. Freedom Wars with over 1.2 million units sold, takes seventh place while looking ahead to tenth spot, we see Watch Dogs for the PS3 raking up just under 60K in sales.

Checking out hardware sales, are you really expecting anything different by now? Nope! The 3DS is still the favourite handheld for Japan with 31,192 units sold for the week. The PS Vita manages to take the second spot with 27,352 units sold while the once struggling Wii U seems to be alright with 8,209 units sold. The Wii U seems to be constantly in third place which is different from months ago where it was constantly in a lot lower in the charts. Sony’s latest console, the PlayStation 4, looks like it hasn’t struck a chord yet with gamers languishing in fifth spot behind the older PS3.
