Weekly Japanese Game Charts

Weekly Japanese Game Charts - Week 22 (May 27 – June 2). As Media Create reports (via NeoGAF) it’s been a terribly slow sales week in the Japanese video game industry. It must be said however the overall market decline can be attributed primarily to a lack of significant releases as we head into the summer.

 

 

Friend Collection: New Life reclaimed the top spot with just 59, 104 units sold, to put this in perspective last week’s number 1, Shin Megami Tensei IV shifted over 188,000 copies, that’s a reduction of over 68%!!

 

Just three new titles broke into the top 20, Norn9: Norn + Nonette in 7th, DoDonPachi Saidaioujou in 9th and the inexplicably named Haiyore! Nyaruko-San: Nafushigatai Game no You na Mono in 11th  - the direct translation of which is ‘Crawl towards me Nyaruko-sn: Something Like A Game That’s Difficult To Describe!’

 

 

Resident Evil: Revelations holds strong at number 2 emphasising the dominance of the PS3 in Japan as both the Wii U and Xbox 360 versions drop out of the chart entirely. Despite sales dropping 84% Shin Megami Tensei IV only falls two places to 3rd, maintaining its unsurprisingly impressive start in the region. Rounding out the top five, Kamen Rider: Battride War and Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon both squeeze in with sales just north of 19,000 units.

 

TOP TEN CUMULATIVE SALES

Altogether the top 10 yielded total unit sales of just 222,084 for week 22, an overall decrease of 66%!!! The chart below emphatically highlights the differences in sales over the last 3 weeks.
