The weekly software and hardware sales from Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and it was another dismal week for the Japanese market. Only two new games (one of which was actually just a Game of the Year Edition re-release) managed to crack the top twenty, and neither of them came anywhere near 20,000 units sold. As such, Yo-kai Watch 3 enjoyed another week atop the charts, despite the fact that its sales have declined rather rapidly.

Hardware sales remained relatively unchanged from last week for 3DS and Wii U, while Vita saw a slight bump. PlayStation 4 sales
plummeted two weeks ago, and that trend continued this past week, as Sony’s home console sold less than 2,000 units in all of Japan. It looks like Japanese gamers are holding off on buying the console in anticipation of one or more new models being unveiled during today’s PlayStation event. You can check out the full breakdown below.
