Namco Bandai scores #1 in Japanese charts

Summon Night 5 knocks Tomodachi Collection off the top spot

This week it was no change in the hardware charts, but a brand new number one on the software chart for Namco Bandai with Summon Night 5 for the PSP.

Hardware sales fell across the board but the 3DS XL still managed 24,123, more than enough to keep it ahead of its nearest rival, the original 3DS, by more than 10,000 units.

  1. 3DS XL - 24,123 (Last week - 33,351)
  2. 3DS - 13,001 (16,412)
  3. PlayStation 3 - 10,948 (12,793)
  4. PlayStation Vita - 10,931 (12,331)
  5. PSP - 6,524 (6,360)
  6. Wii U - 6,037 (7,974)
  7. Wii - 1,143 (1,506)
  8. Xbox 360 - 349 (485)

There were two new entries in the top five on the software chart, with a new number one and PS3 game Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse debuting at five.

  1. [PSP] Summon Night 5 - 105,511 (New entry)

Are the 3DS and 3DS XL really rivals though?

Excellent opening for Summon Night 5. SN 4 opened to just 40,000 only 6 months ago.

I usually love most of namco's games, especially the tales series. So Im glad Summon Night is doing well for them.
