While it couldn’t top Girls Mode 3: Kirakira Code on Nintendo 3DS, Dying Light on PlayStation 4 did manage to capture second place when it debuted in Japan last week, moving 25,500 units.

Aside from that, it was a fairly bland week, with Saints Row IV: Re-Elected the only other console new release in the top 20, selling 4,800 copies. Bloodborne, meanwhile, remains in the top 10 and brings its total to over 190,000.

For hardware, everything was down, though the PS4 held onto first place yet again, with the PlayStation Vita and New 3DS XL in 2nd and 3rd, respectively.

Here’s how each system sold, along with the top 20 selling retail games in Japan from April 13 – 19, 2015, according to Media Create:
