Dragon Quest Heroes for PS3 and PS4 Conquers Japan According to Major Retailer’s Weekly Charts

on March 1, 2015 8:42 PM

The major Japanese retailer Tsutaya just released its weekly chart for the week between February 23nd and March 1st. Tsutaya’s charts are related only to the retailer itself, but they’re considered a quite good indicator of how the general Japanese market, due to the number of Tsutaya stores across the country.

  1. Dragon Quest Heroes – PS3
  2. Dragon Quest Heroes – PS4
  3. God Eater 2: Rage Burst – PS Vita
  4. The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D – 3DS
  5. Nanatsunotaizai Shinjitsu no Enzai – 3DS
  6. Youkai Watch 2: Headliner – 3DS
  7. Dragon Ball Xenoverse – PS3
  8. God Eater 2: Rage Burst – PS4
  9. Samurai Warriors 4-II – PS3
  10. The Order: 1886 – PS4
  11. Super Smash Bros. For Nintendo 3DS – 3DS
  12. Monster Hunter 4G – 3DS
  13. Dragon Ball Xenoverse – PS4
  14. Pokémon Alpha Sapphire – 3DS
  15. Pokémon Omega Ruby – 3DS
  16. Samurai Warriors 4-II – PS4
  17. Yuki Tomo Na wa Yushadearu Jukai no Kioku – PS Vita
  18. Super Smash Bros. For Wii U – Wii U
  19. Dead or Alive 5: Last Round – PS4
  20. Far Cry 4 – PS3

Predictably, Dragon Quest Hersoes smashes every possible competition this week, even if we’ll have to wait for Wednesday’s Media Create charts to see exactly how much it sold. The PS3 version outsold the PS4 version, and that’s also quite predictable, as PS4 users in Japan seem to prefer digital downloads.

The PS Vita version of God Eater 2: Rage Burst also holds strong, dropping only to third position after its debut at the top last week. The Order: 1886 doesn’t drop as much as I expected (western shooters normally do quite sharply in their second week, or disappear from the chart altogether), remaining in the top half of the chart with a well deserved 10th place.

He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
