Gaming Life In Japan ~ 4/8/14 – 10/8/14

After a week or so on hiatus, Gaming Life in Japan is back!

Topping the software charts this week was Level 5’s entry for the Nintendo 3DS, Yokai Watch 2: Ganso / Honke with nearly 121k units sold. That brings up the grand total to 2,093,992 units sold, a very tidy figure.

Second on the charts Bandai Namco’s new entry on the 3DS, Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission 2. Quite a few new entries this week with third spot being held by Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson from Marvelous software also for the 3DS. The aging PS3 gets a mention with Ultra Street Fighter IV from Capcom debuting at number four this week as everyone’s karting game, Mario Kart 8, sits pretty at number five. Number six sees a new debut for the PS Vita this time from NIS with Shin Hayarigami. The PS3 version of the same game rounds out the chart this week taking out the tenth spot.

Looking at hardware, we see the 3DS LL hold a commanding lead with 33,172 units sold as the PS Vita contends with second spot selling 17,084 handhelds.

Good to see the Wii U finally find some stability in Japan with the console holding the fort down in third with 13,598 units sold the past week.
