Xenoblade Chronicles X missed the top spot on the Japanese Media Create charts during its debut week, but it actually still managed to grab a first place, as reported on the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu.

This week we got the ranking for digital downloads (that aren’t covered by Media Create) in May, and Nintendo’s mecha-powered JRPG came out firmly on top, as you can see in the list below, that also includes percentages compared to total sales.

  1. Xenoblade Chroniocles X (Wii U): 22,805 – 17.6%
  2. Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition (PS3): 14,750 -100%
  3. Bravely Second: End Layer (3DS) : 14,532 – 9.1%
  4. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (PS4): 11,350 – 14.4%
  5. Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition (PS Vita): 10,938 – 14.8%
  6. Tropico 5 (PS4)- 10,200 – 37.0%
  7. Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition (3DS): 6,139 – 2.3%

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.
