<< Last week’s software sales chart

 

Another week of slow sales. The highest-selling game in Japan last week was Namco Bandai’s Summon Night 5, which sold 105,511 copies in its first week. Not too far from Summon Night 4′s first week sales of 115,701 copies.

 

Behind Summon Night was Tomodachi Collection: New Life with another 63,000 copies sold. 

 

Meanwhile, hardware sales took another turn for the worse, with the Wii U selling 6,000 units and the PlayStation Vita 11,000 units. Nintendo 3DS sales, too, saw a dive for the week, coming in at 37,000 units.

 

Next week’s sales chart should prove more interesting, with Shin Megami Tensei IV, Kamen Rider: Battride War and Resident Evil: Revelations for consoles slated for release in Japan tomorrow.

 

The top-20 chart for the week was as follows:
