Last week in Japan, we saw the release of Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue, Danganronpa V3, SG/ZH School Girl Zombie Hunter, and Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkuni’s complete bundle version. Here’s the latest from Japanese sales tracker, Media Create, with a look at software and hardware sales from the week of January 9 through January 15, 2017.


At #1 this week is none other than Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8: Final Chapter Prologue with 137,797 units sold on its debuting week. This is actually the highest of the HD Kingdom Hearts remixes after Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 Remix’s 84,935 units sold on PS3 in its 2014 debut and Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix’s 128,414 copies sold on PS3 back in 2013. That said, each entry in the Kingdom Hearts series has been ported, enhanced, made into a video, or had some kind of Remix to it, so I think it’s safe to say that fans are more than ready for Kingdom Hearts III. Actually, on second thought, there’s still Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 Remix.


#2 and #3 both go to Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony, with 76,166 units sold on PS Vita and 40,006 for PS4, combining for a total of 116,172 units between the two. This is quite a climb for the series after Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls sold 70,596 copies in its debut on PS Vita in 2014 and Super Danganronpa 2 on PSP with a debut of 69,000 back in 2012.


D3 Publisher’s SG/ZH School Girl/Zombie Hunter also released this past week with 8,439 copies sold on PS4 for its debut to place #11. And finally, Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni Bikini Party Edition, the “complete” version of the game with all of its DLC goodies, opened with 5,078 units sold on PS Vita to place #14.


On the hardware front of the week, Japan finally saw the after-holiday drop in sales with significant drops for most of the console lineup. It looks like things will start going back to normal for a while until the next big titles come up.
