First of all, apologies for not posting anything on the Media Create charts last week. I was off for the week to assist my brother with his work.

Second, am I seeing this right? Ace Attorney releases for a quarter-million units sold and 3DS sales drop a 1,000 units, then rise the next week by 21,000 when a Disney game is the top seller? If this is a sign of things, then Nintendo may want to get Disney to pump out some more games for the Wii U.

Obviously, the big winner the past two weeks is Ace Attorney with almost 300,000 units sold in a week and a half. Hopefully, we’ll see similar numbers when the game releases in North America and Europe on the eShop later this year.

Dragon's Crown | Media Create

Also releasing to decent numbers the past two weeks is Dragon’s Crown, releasing for both the PS3 and Vita. It should be noted that both versions sold nearly 90% of the initial stock the first week. The game has also released in North America this week and will release in Europe later this year. Check out our review here for more information on the game if you’re still on the fence about it.

Other games:

The Witch and the Hundred Knights | Media Create

The Witch and the Hundred Knights released and has a two week total of 65,340. The game has been confirmed for release in North America.

Killer Is Dead | Media Create

-Suda51’s latest game, Killer Is Dead, released to modest sales of 17,709 units sold. The game will be releasing later this month in all regions courtesy of XSEED in North America, Deep Silver in PAL regions, and Sony Computer Entertainment Asia for the rest of Asia.

MIND 0 | Media Create

MIND≒0 released this past week to sales of 15,575 units sold. No localization has been announced for this Vita RPG and it could become difficult with these numbers.

Fantasy Life | Media Create

-Already selling 300,000 units, Fantasy Life has returned to the list. However, it seems to be a new release of the game called Fantasy Life: Link! Not sure if this is a new iteration with updates or some sort of discounted copy. Either way, it’s back in the Top 20.

    I thought Dual Destinies was out in Japan already. Capcom is really slashing the time between regional releases, aren’t they? Good for them.
