Even with Shin Megami Tensei IV: Final selling 96,000 copies in its first week, the New 3DS LL couldn’t top the PlayStation 4, which remained in first place despite dropping by a few thousand units.

On the software chart, Dragon Quest Builders for PlayStation Vita placed in second with 24,500 sold, bringing its lifetime total to just under 250,000. Then, in third place, Valkyria Chronicles Remastered for PS4 debuted, moving 24,100 copies.

If you live in North America or Europe, Valkyria Chronicles Remastered will be available this spring.
