<< Last week’s software sales chart


Last week was a fairly uneventful one in Japan, with new notable new releases making their way into the market. As a result, Monster Hunter 4 remained at the top spot of the top-20 software sales chart, with no other game even close to its sales for the week.


Meanwhile, The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Flash saw a steep drop in its second week. We’re keeping an eye on Trails in the Flash to see how it performs over the next couple of weeks, so hopefully, we’ll be able to put some sort of a report on it together in the near future.


Next week, the fun begins again, with the releases of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, and the new PlayStation Vita 2000 model.


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