Like every week, the major Japanese retailer Tsutaya was the first to release sales charts for the local market, giving a glimpse on the software situation in the archipelago of the rising sun.
Tsutaya’s charts are usually considered an interesting look on the Japanese market three days before the release of the more detailed Media Create charts, since the retailer has a very large number of stores scattered across the whole country.

This week sees only two new releases, 7th Dragon III code: VFD and Super-Dimensional Tag Blanc + Neptunia VS Zombie Corps, debuting respectively in first and sixth position, but perhaps more relevant is the resilience in the charts of Super Mario Maker and Tokyo Xanadu.
Splatoon also got a solid boost this week, evidence that that train isn’t stopping any time soon.
Interestingly, while Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 remain solid close to the top of the chart, its rival FIFA 16 has collapsed to the bottom. Electronic Arts still has a long way to go to evict Konami’s football/soccer series from its home turf.
