Wow! Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate was expected to sell well in this week’s Media Create charts (you know, with it being a Monster Hunter game in Japan), but I didn’t expect the 3DS to have such a jump as well. I guess not all Monster Hunter fans jumped onto the system yet…

New Nintendo 3DS and New Nintendo 3DS LL | Media Create

…which would be the case if it wasn’t for a new model releasing on the same day. Yes, the New Nintendo 3DS is now out in Japan and sold over 230,000 units in two days. Not bad for a release of a new model. For those that want to see the breakdown, here it is.

New 3DSLL 164.756
New 3DS 70.050
3DSLL 19.727
3DS 7.340

As expected, the rest of the hardware line-up took a bit of a hit. PS Vita fell over a third from where it was last week. Wii U dropped below 7,000, although is still two times better than last year at Week 41. Xbox One is below the 1,000 units mark. The only system that went up was PS4. I guess people in Japan love soccer.

So, moving on to new games, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate absolutely dominated with 1.4 million in sales in its first two days. This is the updated version that includes online gameplay that will be coming West next year.

Next is FIFA 15, which saw releases across the board and had three versions in the Top 20. Those versions are PS4, PS3, and PS Vita. FIFA 15 is out in the West.

Finishing up new releases this week is Driveclub. This is a racing game that was announced during the PS4 reveal conference last year. The game released last week in all regions.

Super Smash Bros. for 3DS | Media Create

As for returning games, Yo-kai Watch and Yoshi’s New Island both return to the Top 20 after missing last week. Meanwhile, Super Smash Bros. for 3DS comes in with 76,000 units sold for a total of 1,557,829 units in a month. Forbidden Magna stays on but drops about 82% from last week for only 4,247 units sold. And Yo-kai Watch 2 continues to march towards 3 million units sold with less than 300,000 units to go in 11 weeks.

    Adding to Xbox One’s sadness in Japan is that the platform has no games listed in this edition of the Japanese Video Game Sales Charts.

    All those systems that have less-than-four-digit hardware sales that week have zero games listed in the software charts.

    The only other new game that appeared on the charts that week is Majin Bone: The Majin of Space and Time for 3DS.
