A very slow week on the Japanese sales charts this week as the only new Nintendo release is the dual-SKU release of Medarot 8 in both  Kabuto  and Kuwagta versions. The game was developed by Rokcet Company and manage to sell just over 30,000 in it’s debut week placing it sixth over all. The only Nintendo platform title which beat it is the smash hit Yokai Watch 2, another dual-SKU release. Mario Kart 8 and Hyrule Warriors for the Wii U are still in the top 20 maintaining the recent momentum. Hyrule Warriors did drop in volume this week by 50% so might be the last week we see it in the Top 20 if it continues to drop. Perhaps the future release of DLC could spur new life into the title?
