Anything seem odd to you in this week’s Media Create charts?

Console This Week Last Week
PSP 9.365 1.421

Yeah, that does seem out of place, especially with the PSP mostly hanging around the 1,600 mark the past few months. Well, as it turns out, the PSP is no longer shipping in Japan. So there seems to be a run on the console before it’s completely off the market.

But it seemed like there was a bit of a bump for a number of systems. The PS4 sales numbers increased by about 3,000. 3DS numbers increased by about 12,500 units. While both saw new games release this week in the Top 20, it was the 3DS games that seemed to drive sales for their system.

Persona Q - Media Create | oprainfall

And it starts with this week’s number one game: Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth. One of three Persona titles announced last year, Persona Q mixes characters from Persona 3 and Persona 4 with gameplay of this series and another Atlus property, Etrian Odyssey. Persona Q will release in the West this Fall.

The next new game comes from Unchained Blades developer FuRyu. This is another 3DS game called Cardfight!! Vanguard: Lock on Victory!!. This is the second 3DS game in the series, focusing on the Link Joker arc of the Cardfight!! Vanguard anime/manga. If you want this game, you’ll need to import (as well as buy a Japanese 3DS).

The next new game is Wolfenstein: The New Order, getting the PS4 and PS3 ports into the Top 20. The New Order is the latest game in the series, focusing on an alternate reality where the Nazis won World War II. The New Order has already released in the West.

Next new game, and only Xbox 360 on the list, is Tsurugi no Machi no Ihoujin: Shiro no Oukyuu. Not much is known, but it looks like a dungeon crawler that will be coming to PC and Vita later this year.

The final new game in the Top 20 is Rain, the PS3 adventure game from Acquire and SCE Japan Studio. While the game was released on PSN last year, it appears that a physical version was released.

Monster Hunter 4 - Media Create | oprainfall

As for returning games, we see Monster Hunter 4 return to the Top 20. We also see FIFA 14 make the list, which is pretty remarkable since the game didn’t even make the Top 50 last week (although maybe not really remarkable since the World Cup starts this week). And last week’s top game, Mario Kart 8, dropped 78% in sales, moving 73,000 units going through its second weekend.

    Persona Q DOES NOT MIX with Etrian Oddysey in ANY WAY, Persona IS a SHIN MEGAMI TENSEI if you tend to forget, the game play was originally FROM SHIN MEGAMI TENSEI

    • Jorge

      Actually the gameplay for Persona Q is pretty much taken from Etrian Odyssey. They even have FOE enemies, self made maps, and all that stuff.

    • Pedro Rosas

      Did you ever play SMT? -____-

    • Jorge

      I have like every SMT game since the PS2. Have you actually seen any Persona Q gameplay? It’s very much like Etrian Odyssey, Class of Heroes, etc

    • Jorge

      In this article the director literally says ““This will be the first title the Persona team will be making for Nintendo 3DS, and we also have Etrian Odyssey that represents Atlus for the 3DS, and we’ll be using its system as part of a ‘festive’ collaboration mindset in the development for Persona Q.”

    Mobile Suit Gundam Side Stories had a very huge sales drop…

    Tsurugi no Machi no Ihoujin: Shiro no Oukyuu (developed by Experience and published by Kadokawa Games) Xbox 360 is the big surprise of this top 20 chart, although its first-week sales is not on par with that of Dodonpachi Saidaioujou Kan or Caladrius (those two of the most recent 360 individual shoot-em-ups). I hope the dungeon-crawler has a better showing sales-wise when it is released on the Vita.

    That PSP “panic-buying” is not enough to topple PS4’s sales (because of Wolfenstein The New Order)… And Wii U hardware sales managed not to get below 10,000 this week…
