The Japanese Media Create chart results are out, and this week isn’t short of new releases – notably, however, some titles that are major names in the West have only made a modest impression in Japan.

Kirby: Planet Robobot is still the best-placed game on Nintendo hardware, showing solid momentum in second place and having passed a quarter of a million physical retail sales in the country. Yo-kai Sangokushi is next for 3DS in 4th, though its sales are in four figures, as they are for all but the top two games. Big-hitters in the West such as Doom have had a modest launch in Japan, while My Hero Academia: Battle For All on 3DS could only manage 9th place in its first week. The top 20 is below, with lifetime sales in brackets.

The hardware scene shows decline for the most part, with the New 3DS LL (XL) still in second between the PS4 and Vita. The Wii U managed to eke out some extra sales, though its sales are still poor; the details are below with last week’s sales in brackets.

  1. PlayStation 4 – 18,430 (23,239)
  2. New 3DS LL – 12,051 (13,623)
  3. PlayStation Vita – 10,954 (12,299)

  5. New 3DS – 2,552 (3,021)
  6. PlayStation 3 – 1,001 (997)
  7. 3DS – 700 (823)
  8. 3DS LL – 103 (128)
  9. Xbox One – 72 (115)

This week’s results do demonstrate how sales trends differ in Japan – titles that have been a major success in the West are struggling to make an impact. For Kirby there’s certainly positive momentum, with the platformer arriving in Europe and North America on 10th June.
