Splatoon Continues Its Momentum In Japan

Product research firm – Media Create – has released that latest weekly game charts for Japan. These sales represent the week ending June 21.

At the top of the software charts for a second consecutive week is Rhythm Heaven: The Best Plus, selling 66 415 units. The highlight software debut is Return to PopoloCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale moving 46,491 copies.

Perhaps, the highlight of the week is Splatoon. Splatoon continues its impressive run in Japan moving 43,653 copies this week, putting its lifetime sales in Japan to 310,582. This comes after the news that Splatoon has surpassed one million copies world wide.

The 3DS is the best selling console of the week, with 24, 000 more hardware units sold last week. For the 4th consecutive week, the Wii U is the best selling home console in Japan selling close to 15, 000 units.

The 3DS should get a sizable boost next week, with the launch of Fire Emblem Fates in the region. The game has been bundled with the hardware, so a sizable boost should be expected. As for the Wii U, the next big game will be Super Mario Maker in September, so far now Splatoon will need to work its magic a little while longer.
