Japanese Sales: Wii U In Quicksand, Vita Doesn’t Mean Life, Everything Doomed, Fire All Of The Things


Valhalla Knights 3
apparently provided even less than the "modest" Vita sales blip I predicted. Here are Japan's top 20 best-selling games for the week ending May 26. It's a great debut for the game, but the Vita as a platform needs more than one game in a month. VH3 represents its one and only.

1. Shin Megami Tensei IV - 3DS (188,562)
2. Kamen Rider Battride War - PS3 (128,659)
3. Biohazard Revelations - PS3 (102,673)
4. Friend Collection - 3DS (59,876)
5. Valhalla Knights 3 - PSV (40,357)
6. Terraria - PS3 (19,861)
7. Luigi's Mansion 2 - 3DS (19,079)
8. Animal Crossing: New Leaf - 3DS (15,489)
9. Summon Night 5 - PSP (13,624)
10. Biohazard Revelations - WIU (8,398)
11. Biohazard Revelations - 360 (7,053)
12. Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen - PS3 (5,334)
13. Taiko Drum Master Continues to Not Give a Fuuuck - Wii (5,190)
14. Z/X: Zillions of Enemy, By Which They Probably Mean EnemIES But Hey - PS3 (5,019)
15. Dragon Ball Heroes - 3DS (4,105)
16. Tamagochi: Still Popular Here - 3DS (3,961)
17. New Super Mario Bros. 2 - 3DS (3,517)
18. MuvLuv Alternative: Total Eclipse - PS3 (3,138)
19. Mario Kart 7 - 3DS (3,045)
20. Monster Hunter Tri-G - 3DS (2,612)

Hardware totals look like this:

3DS - 54,710
PS3 - 13,318
PSV - 12,171
PSP - 5,749
WIU - 5,648
WII - 1,192
360 - 382

Comrade Bras will share my disappointment that the 360 once again finished so close to, well, 360. We're all waiting for el dia muy especial. Which of course, is Spanish for "the dia very especial."
