Well, there you go with the PS4.
Now to see if they will sustain an 18k+ weekly average (should hopefully be more, like 20-25k+ for the foreseeable future with a price drop).

Strong debut for Tokyo Xanadu (advertisement worked). Good debut overall for Yoru as well, being a new IP (might it counterbalance the drop Atelier is experiencing?).

Pokémon is really bombing. YW Busters still selling well as well as Splatoon. DQVIII might reach the 900k mark (it sold 30k on the eShop already).

Arslan... Quite a flop.

Holy fucking Arslan bomba. Also pretty weird to see how footbal games sell less and less every year in Japan when in pretty much every other country on earth we are seeing growth every year. PS4 did good.

Pokémon is really bombing.
It's a Mystery Dungeon game and tracking around the same as the last one. Not exactly a bomb.

Omg at those Ps4 numbers, console gaming lives, thank you Japan, wow.

Edit: also the splatoon dream is finally over.
Considering a significant price cut just happened, it's not surprising. Wait to see where it levels off at before celebrating :p

The end of an era. Pokken really need to take over the place of poke mystery dungeon there.

Yoru and xanadu indeed is doing well there.

WE on the other hand is doing pathetic there.T_T

They should have ported Arsalan to Vita. Could have sold some copies.

Tokyo Xandu debut is mighty impressive for a new IP. It should easily reach 200k+ with digital + physical.
Tokyo Xanadu is not a new IP, technically. The Xanadu games have been around since the 1980s.

Mystery Dungeon games had also sold quite better in the past - and Infinity Gates were holding MUCH better.
While it has dropped a bit more than the last one, it is still ahead and the Japanese gaming industry is much different now to how it was then. Third week had it at 40k but was #9. Now, if you have 40k, chances are you're number one or two unless a huge release came.

It's still a Dungeon game which is a tired series.

Seriously. Especially since the last iteration, which did similarly, was on a much more popular system.
Last iteration was on 3DS but yeah. People just look at numbers and not context.

They should have ported Arsalan to Vita. Could have sold some copies.

Tokyo Xandu debut is mighty impressive for a new IP. It should easily reach 200k+ with digital + physical.
We're talking about Falcom releasing a Falcom style action rpg with Falcom style music. It's a great result no doubt, but it's in line with their other releases. It opened stronger than Nayuta no Kiseki, which is great, but not by that much of a margin. Xanadu also isn't a "new IP". :p

I find the Koei Tecmo RPG result more impressive honestly, because it seemed pretty risky and is actually something different for both Koei Tecmo and for Gust.
