Software sales are somewhat disappointing on the latest Media Create chart, with the highest entry (New Super Mario Bros. 2) only managing to shift 39 708 copies. Max Payne 3 has taken a few months to reach Japan and recorded lacklustre sales of 24 264 units during its first week on store shelves.

Namco Bandai’s latest RPG Lost Heroes performed moderately well on 3DS and PSP to rack up combined sales of close to 50k, while last week’s number one Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f fell to fifth spot with a massive 88% decrease in sales.
