Last week, Japan saw several debuts with seven new titles in the top-20 sales chart. New titles of the week includes Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology, Osomatsu-san The Game, Portal Knights, and more. Japanese sales tracker Media Create shares a look at software and hardware sales data from the week of June 26 through July 2, 2017.

Top of the week is Atlus’ 3DS remake, Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology, which sold 24,596 units for 3DS in its debut. The original Radiant Historia sold 32,807 units back in November 2010 for Nintendo DS which wasn’t exactly big numbers back then but Perfect Chronology’s sales figure isn’t that bad considering today’s market and the game’s lower budget.

Our favorite sextuplet NEETs are back at it again in the PS Vita visual novel Osomatsu-san: The Game Hachamecha Shushoku Advice Dead or Work at #4 in with 11,579 units sold, short of the series’ previous game Osomatsu-san: Matsu Matsuri! which debuted with 16,911 units sold on 3DS in December 2016.

As far as other new titles go, Survival action RPG Portal Knights saw its PS4 release in Japan with a #5 debut with 11,498 units sold on PS4,  Lego City Undercover charted at #9 with 5,351 units sold, and Call of Duty: Black Ops III Game of the Year Edition sold 3,244 units on PS4 to chart at #12.

Lastly, we have two new visual novel entries with Tsumikui: Sen no Noroi, Sen no Inori~ for V at #14 with 3,105 units sold on PS Vita, and Karumaruka*Circle at #16 with 2,937 units sold on PS Vita for its debut.

Hardware sales were mostly the same as the week prior with a slight increase for the PS4, PS Vita, and New 3DS LL. The Nintendo Switch was the top-selling console of the week with 25,805 units sold, putting it at 1,038,824 units sold in Japan since its March launch going by Media Create’s numbers.
