As every Wednesday, Media Create released its software and hardware sales for Japan, and there are a few surprises this time around, with the PS4 holding on top in the second week after its price cut (ok, this isn’t surprising), and Yo-Kai Watch Busters returning to the top during a slow software week.

Here’s the software chart:

  1. Yo-Kai Watch Busters: Red Cat Team / White Dog Squad – 3DS – 28,244
  2. Pro Baseball Famista Returns – 3DS – 25,597
  3. Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection – PS4 – 24,867
  4. Super Mario Maker – Wii U – 24,533
  5. FIFA 16 – PS4 –  20,909
  6. Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 – PS3 – 17,833
  7. Tokyo Xanadu – PS Vita – 15,535
  8. Picross 3D 2 – 3DS – 14,299
  9. Lasso Action! Wrap Around! Chibi Robo! – 3DS – 14,096
  10. Splatoon – 13,186
  11. Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 – PS4 – 12,607
  12. Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer – 3DS – 12,563
  13. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain – PS4 – 12,381
  14. Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon – 3DS – 11,912
  15. FIFA 16 – PS3 – 10,442
  16. Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition – PS Vita – 7,574
  17. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain – PS3 – 6,782
  18. Dragon Quest VIII – 3DS – 5,946
  19. Yoru no Nai Kuni – PS Vita – 5,743
  20. Monster Hunter Diary – 3DS – 4,900

And here are the hardware sales:

  1. PS4 – 30,349
  2. New 3DS XL – 17,856
  3. PS Vita – 14,368
  4. Wii U –  11,594
  5. New 3DS –  4,031
  6. PS3 – 1,929
  7. 3DS – 1,131
  8. PS Vita TV – 670
  9. 3DS XL – 548
  10. Xbox One – 224

In a week of very slow sales, Famista Returns manages to top new releases by an inch, beating Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection, that probably pushed PS4 sales a bit further, even if it didn’t have a stellar debut.

The rest remains par for the course, with Super Mario Maker and Splatoon that keep on trucking and Tokyo Xanadu showing a pretty decent second week. Incidentally, Splatoon overtook the 700,000 copies milestone this week, and that’s definitely a great result for a new IP.
