Japanese Sales Chart: Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8, Danganronpa V3 See Strong Debuts

Putting an end to the Nintendo 3DS’s recent win streak in software, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue for PlayStation 4 debuted in 1st place, moving 138,000 copies. Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony was right behind it in 2nd and 3rd on PlayStation Vita and PS4, respectively, selling a combined 116,000 copies.

Despite the big new releases, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita sales plummeted week-over-week (they fell by 40,000 and 20,000 units, respectively), but PS4 still managed to remain in 1st place.
