Watch Dogs sold 95k in Japan last week

Ubisoft's hit continues to perform, though Freedom Wars takes number one

The PlayStation Vita RPG Freedom Wars topped the Japanese charts last week with nearly 190,000 sales - but Ubisoft's Watch Dogs wasn't too far behind.

Sales of Vita hardware nearly doubled on the release of Freedom Wars, though it still finished a few hundred units short of the 3DS XL. However, the most surprising story of the week was arguably Ubisoft's Watch Dogs, which sold almost 95,000 units across both PlayStation consoles - with more than 63,000 on PlayStation 4.

And it was a busy week on the software chart in general, with every one of the top six spots occupied by a new release. The software top ten is below, with lifetime sales in parentheses:
