Japanese gamers still love their Tokusatsu, and the PS4 debut of the Kamen Rider franchise did rather well, actually selling better on PS4 than on other PlayStation platforms. On the other hand, Street Fighter V keeps suffering from rather disappointing sales, considering the magnitude of the series.

Disappointing is also the launch of Nippon Ichi’s PS Vita exclusive JRPG The Hero Must Die., but Nippon Ichi never really cares all that much about sales, and the game wasn’t exactly pushed strongly on the marketing side.

Incidentally, this is also the first week in which Super Mario Maker dropped off the top 20, after a very long and successful tail, while Splatoon still holds in there in 13th place.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
