Youkai Watch, meanwhile, is still a strong release.
The Media Create sales for games in Japan from June 16th to 22nd are out, and surprise, surprise but a Pokemon game is on top. It’s not your typical RPG experience though – it’s Pokemon Art Academy which sold 31,080 units for the 3DS in its opening week.
It’s followed closely by Level 5’s Youkai Watch, which sold 30,394 units and managed to sell 1,117,611 units in its lifetime. Mario Kart 8 is still going great guns for Nintendo – while The Wonderful 101 and Pikmin 3 fell off the top ten fairly quickly, Mario Kart 8 is still in the top 3. It’s sold 28,112 units this week with 469,316 units sold in its lifetime.
World Soccer Winning Eleven 2014: Samurai Blue Challenge for the PS3 managed to sell 20,600 units (lifetime sales at 123,867 units) and the PS4 version selling 7,374 units (with 50,288 units over its lifetime). Overall, it was a very slow week for releases in Japan but we’ll see how things pick up in the coming months when newer Wii U and 3DS titles hit.
