After failing to make any kind meaningful impact in the latest UK charts, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite has crashed and burned in Japan, where it barely sold over 8000 copies on PlayStation 4. Historically, the series has never produced a huge hit in the Land of the Rising Sun, but these are still disastrous numbers for the crossover fighter.

Sony's console, meanwhile, once again found itself settling for around 25,000 units. It's a shame that this week's biggest story comes in the form of a total flop, but there's really not much else worth mentioning.
