Nintendo 3DS XL sales: 53,190 | Total sales: 4,704,886

Last week saw the release of Battlefield 4 in Japan. The game sold close to 122,000 copies on the PlayStation 3 and nearly another 11,000 copies on Xbox 360, making for a very respectable launch.
Also released last week was Akiba’s Trip, which didn’t fare as well, selling 33,476 copies on the Vita and another 20,230 copies on the PlayStation 3. That amounts to a total of 53,706 copies sold, which is lower than first-week sales of the original Akiba’s Trip, released in 2011. That game sold 58,150 copies in its first week.
The lower retail sales are intriguing, as Akiba’s Trip 2 probably cost more to develop than the first game and was released on two platforms as opposed to one. Perhaps Media Create will provide further insight regarding the game’s sales in their supplementary report later this week.
Other new releases for the week included Exstetra, Rocksmith 2014, Metal Max 4: Moonlight Diva and J-Legend Biography.
