Japanese Sales Chart

The latest Japanese software sales are in. Of course, as you’d assume, Mario Tennis Aces is still in the lead, much as it has been on several charts back. This week, though, the Japanese sales chart has shown that Zanki Zero: Last Beginning sold 15,541 retail copies on the PlayStation 4 and 9,111 copies on the PS Vita during its opening week in that particular region (that makes 24,652 copies in Japan alone), according to the latest Media Create sales data.

Interestingly enough, The Crew 2, which was in third spot last week, now falls to spot 6 on the list.
