We enter the second half of the year on a down week in the Media Create charts. While software took the brunt of it with only one new game releasing this past week, hardware stayed relatively untouched. There was a dip below 10,000 for the Wii U and the Vita did fall about 4,000 units, but the numbers and placements pretty much stayed the same.

Mario Kart 8 - Media Create | oprainfall

And I’m having trouble coming to terms with what Mario Kart 8 is to the Wii U in Japan. The game has sold 2 million copies worldwide but only a quarter of that in the region. It has helped the Wii U move units — and even better its weekly numbers from this time last year — but it hasn’t really driven the console sales in the region like I hoped. Hopefully, the games coming later this year will help its case.

AKIBA’S TRIP: Undead & Undressed - Media Create | oprainfall

Moving over to software, we have one new release in the Top 20 to talk about. That would be Akiba’s Trip: Undead & Undressed. This is the PS4 port of Acquire’s adventure game. The PS3 and Vita versions will release in North America on August 5th, 2014, courtesy of Marvelous USA/XSEED Games.

Yokai Watch - Media Create | oprainfall Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth - Media Create | oprainfall

As for returning games, Freedom Wars, Yo-kai Watch, Taiko no Tatsujin, Mario Kart 8, and the PS4 port of Watch Dogs make up the Top 5. Mario Kart 8 also moved past 500,000 units sold in the region this past week. Further down the list, Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth is closing in on 250,000. And while it happened last week, we can see — with its return to the Top 20 — that Mario Party: Island Tour has surpassed the 400,000 mark.
