Media Create Sales: Monster Hunter 4 on Top for Third Week
Crosses 2 million in sales for Japan in three weeks.
This week’s Media Create Sales have now been revealed and surprise, Capcom’s Monster Hunter 4 is still on top along with the 3DS XL. The sales are indicative of units sold between September 23rd to 29th, and Monster Hunter 4 managed to ship 213,078 units in that period for a total of 2,402,077 units over its lifetime.
Meanwhile, The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki debuted for the PlayStation Vita, selling 81,622 units while Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate sold 80,498 units in its first week. The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki on the PS3 managed to sell 67,718 units as it debuted with the portable version, while From Software’s Armored Core: Verdict Day debuted on the PS3 with 59,184 units sold this week.
Surprisingly, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD didn’t have a strong opening and debuted this week with 30,264 units sold. Considering the state of the Wii U worldwide, the fact that high profile titles aren’t quite doing gangbusters is disturbing (with Pikmin 3 and The Wonderful 101 coming to mind).
At least it was a good week for the 3DS, the XL having sold 93,757 (though last week’s number was 118,400) units and the regular version selling 40,487 units (with last week seeing 40,988 units sold).
