Media Create Japanese Software Sales for week ending April 20th: Youkai Watch keeps FFXIV: A Realm Reborn at bay

Written by: / / No Comments


The latest Media Create software chart may feature five new entries but none of these games managed to sell more than Youkai Watch and 3rd Super Robot Wars Z: Jigoku-Hen which both appeared on last week’s chart. Youkai Watch is clearly benefiting from the popular Japanese anime series by the same name, and after a slow start has now sold 754 910 copies since making its debut last July.

Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is the best-selling new release this week, followed closely by Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney 1-2-3: Naruhodo Selection which is essentially a port of the iOS remake that landed on the Japanese App Store in 2012.

Other new releases include a new otome game for PSP from Idea Factory called Jyuzaengi: Engetsu Sangokuden 2, as well as a new entry in Bandai Namco’s murder mystery series Detective Conan for 3DS.

Here are the ten best-selling titles during the past week:

  • Youkai Watch (Level-5) – 3DS – 34 690
  • 3rd Super Robot Wars Z: Jigoku-Hen (Bandai Namco Games) – PS3 – 31 724
  • [NEW] Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (Square Enix) – PS4 – 31 326
  • [NEW] Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney 1-2-3: Naruhodo Selection (Capcom) – 3DS – 26 925
  • Mario Party: Island Tour (Nintendo) – 3DS – 18 848
