Forums - Sales Discussion - TSUTAYA Ranking: Software Sales Week of Sept 9th-15th

TSUTAYA Software Sales September 9, 2013 (May) - September 15, 2013 (Sun)

Like every Monday morning the major Japanese retailer Tsutaya released its sales charts, that are normally considered a good glimpse on the previous week’s market situation in the archipelago of the rising sun due to the fact that the retailer chain has a large number of stores spread in the whole country.
Here’s the top twenty for the week betwen September the 9th and September the 15th:

1.) Monster Hunter 4 – 3DS
2.) AKB1/149 Renai Sosenkyo (limited edition) - PS3
3.) JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle – PS3
4.) Splinter Cell: Blacklist – PS3
5.) AKB1/149 Renai Sosenkyo - PS3
6.) Brothers Conflict: Brilliant Blue – PSP
7.) Disney Magic Castle: My Happy Life – 3DS
8.) Mario & Luigi: Dream Team – 3DS
9.) Killzone: Mercenary – PS Vita
10.) Puppeteer – PS3
11.) Ragnarok Odyssey Ace – PS Vita
12.) Uta no Prince Sama: MUSIC 2 – PSP
13.) Tomodachi Collection: New Life – 3DS
14.) Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn – PS3
15.) Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate – PS3
16.) Animal Crossing: New Leaf – 3DS
17.) Youkai Watch – 3DS
18.) Lost Planet 3 – PS3
19.) Call of Duty: Black Ops II – PS3
20.) Luigi’s Mansion 2 – 3DS

Monster Hunter 4‘s domination is entirely unsurprising, with reported queues of hundreds of people waiting to purchase the game in front of many stores since the very early morning hours on Saturday. We’re probably looking at extremely big numbers when the Media Create charts are going to come out on Wednesday.

AKB1/149 Renai Sosenkyo‘s second place is a little more surprising, considering that it’s the PS3 port of a game released last year on PSP and PS Vita. It testifies the continuing popularity of the AKB48 idol group and of its
numerous spinoffs.

The most surprising (at least for us westerners) fact may be the presence of not one, but two PSP Games on the top 20, with Uta no Prince Sama: MUSIC 2 holding in the chart after dominating the Media Create ones last week, and the Otome visual novel Brothers Conflict: Brilliant Blue making a strong debut this week. Looks like Japanese lady gamers still love their PSP.

This is Killzone's second week, right? That doesn't seem like a bad hold.

Even a bluff would suit me just fine...

With MH4 Releasing on Saturday, maybe we will see an increase in sales for 3ds other software??? maybe!

Not surprised at all, aside from maybe the Vita titles.

I'm not sure. On the COMG thread it looked like most other 3DS games actually dropped in points from last week. I guess not a lot of customers drop 6,000¥ on a game and say, "As long as I'm here, I might as well spend even more money on more games that I won't have time to play because I'll be too busy hunting."

That might be why Link Between Worlds isn't coming out until next year in Japan. What I don't understand is why the 2DS still doesn't have a release date for Japan... Nintendo should get on that.

^^Still think this week some 3DS games will get a minor boost

Moving this to the sales discussion forum, just so it's in line with all the other Tsutaya threads.

Kinda surprised Jojo is still #3 and Killzone is still in the top 10, but no surprise at the #1 game :P
