Last week, Japan saw the major PS4 release of the latest Mobile Suit Gundam action shooting game, Gundam Versus, which saw its debut alongside D3 Publisher’s Omega Labyrinth Z On PS4 and PS Vita. Japanese sales tracker Media Create shares a look at software and hardware sales data from the week of July 3 through July 9, 2017.

 

At #1 of the week is none other than Gundam Versus, which sold 121,444 units on its debut on PlayStation 4. The previous major Mobile Suit Gundam game, Gundam Breaker 3, sold 141,219 copies with 74,639 coming from the PS Vita version and 66,580 from PS3. Gundam Versus’ debut might not top Gundam Breaker 3’s total between its two versions, but topping 120k is still impressive nonetheless, especially as a PS4-only release.

 

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and ARMS are still hanging in the #2 and #3 spots respectively, with 13,436 and 12,653 copies sold on Nintendo Switch. The only other new title for the week is Omega Labyrinth Z which placed at #4 on PS4 with 9,320 copies and #5 on PS Vita with 8,821 copies sold in its debut for a combined total of 18,141—short of the 25,113 debut of its predecessor Omega Labyrinth back in November 2015 for PS Vita.

 

It’s also worth noting that NieR: Automata crept its way back where it belongs in the top-20 of the week.

 

As far as hardware numbers go, sales remained mostly the same and didn’t really see much of a boost in PS4 sales despite Gundam Versus’ impressive numbers. The Nintendo Switch was the top-selling console again with 26,256 units moved in the week, putting it at 1,065,080 units sold in Japan to date since its March launch, going by Media Create’s numbers.
