<< Last week’s software sales chart

 

Note: Apologies for the delay in this week’s sales column—E3 coverage kept us busy.

 

Last week was quiet yet again in Japan, with no new releases to speak of, save for Minecraft on the Xbox 360. This game sold 4,268 copies in its first week.

 

Meanwhile, the usual popular sellers continued to dominate the top-20 software sales chart for the week. Shin Megami Tensei IV has more or less sold out its first shipment by this point, so Atlus will probably be resupplying the market with new copies soon, if they haven’t already.

 

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