Japanese Sales Charts: Vita Sturdy, Yakuza Spin-Off Strong

Posted by Sammy Barker

What's hot in the land of the rising sun?

The PS Vita managed to keep its head above water again this week, with its sales numbers boosting well above the dreaded 10k units mark in Japan.

Sony’s new handheld was unable to outsell its predecessor, the PSP, though, which was boosted by the release of the anticipated Yakuza spin-off, Black Panther 2.

The PS3 version of the Devil May Cry HD Collection finished fourth in the software charts, while the critically maligned Ninja Gaiden 3 limped into fifth.

Elsewhere, it was complete and utter domination for the Nintendo 3DS once again — we’re starting to wonder if anything can stop it at this point.
