It’ll be interesting to see if The Last of Us ends its first place streak in the UK first, or if it’ll drop out of the top 20 in Japan first. We don’t have to worry about either of those occurrences this week though, as the game tied with a record in the UK on Monday, while dropping 30% in sales to finish 15th in Japan.

On the hardware side of things, the PlayStation Vita was the #2 selling system with 14,392 units moved, the PlayStation 3 was at #4 with 11,413, and the PSP was fifth at 5,719.

Here’s the top 20 selling games in Japan between July 15th and 21st, 2013:

  1. Mario & Luigi: Dream Team (3DS) – 99,972
  2. Youkai Watch (3DS) – 29,102
  3. Pikmin 3 (Wii U) – 28,513
  4. Little Battlers eXperience W: Ultra Custom (3DS) – 27,242
