Pazudora Z and Zelda Overtake Final Fantasy X in Major Japanese Retailer’s Weekly Charts

on January 5, 2014 8:56 PM

Like every Monday the major Japanese retail and rental chain Tsutaya released its weekly sales charts, that are usually considered an interesting glimpse on what the Media Create charts will look like on Wednesday, since Tsutaya has a very large number of stores scattered across the whole country.

Here’s the full chart for the week between December the 30rd and January the 5th. There were no new releases in the past week:

  1. Pazudora Z -3DS
  2. The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds – 3DS
  3. Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster – PS3
  4. Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD Remaster – PS Vita
  5. New Dinasty Warriors Gundam – PS3
  6. Pokémon X – 3DS
  7. Super Mario 3D World – Wii U
  8. Pokémon Y – 3DS
  9. Monster Hunter 4 – 3DS
  10. Sentocho Densetsu No Shinobi to Survival Battle -3DS
  11. Drakengard 3 – PS3
  12. Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Humanity – 3DS
  13. New Dinasty Warriors Gundam – PS Vita
  14. Gran Turismo 6 – PS3
  15. Grand Theft Auto V – PS3
  16. God Eater 2 – PS Vita
  17. Animal Crossing: New Leaf – 3DS
  18. Winning Eleven 2014 – PS3
  19. One Piece: Unlimited World R – 3DS
  20. Tomodachi Collection: New Life – 3DS

Pazudora Z proves to be still extremely strong, as it springs back in first position this week, overtaking both Zelda and Final Fantasy X|X-2 HD, that also trade positions, even if Square Enix’s JRPG is split between three different editions on two platforms. There’s no doubt about the fact the Japanese really love the Puzzle & Dragons franchise born on mobile.

For the rest, the ranking remains pretty much static, with only Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Humanity, God Eater 2 and Sentocho Densetsu No Shinobi to Survival Battle making big jumps, probably due to large amounts of new year money flowing in the pockets of kids and teens all over Japan.
