While it launched as a digital-only title in North America and Europe, the Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition released at retail in Japan last week, moving close to 36,000 copies on PlayStation 4 and debuting in 4th place. 

The chart belongs to Rhythm Heaven: The Best+ again though, as it finished in 1st by moving another 66,000 copies. New 3DS release Return to PopoloCrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale is in 2nd with 46,000, while Splatoon remains a top seller in 3rd and brings its lifetime total to over 300,000.

Over in hardware, both the PS4 and PlayStation Vita saw sales increases, but neither could top the New 3DS XL or Wii U in the chart. Meanwhile, following a low of 100 units last week, the Xbox One more than doubled its sales to finish at 201.
