Pokemon still topping Japanese chart

Phantasy Star Nova can't threaten Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

Six new entries in the Japanese top ten this week but none them could challenge the might of Pokemon Omega Ruby / Alpha Sapphire. The highest new entry, Phantasy Star Nova, was still 191,300 units behind the Pokemon combo.

  4. [PSV] Fate/hollow ataraxia - 53,979 (New entry)
  5. [PS3] Resident Evil - 50,258 (New entry)

In hardware PlayStation Vita moved up to second place, possibly thanks to a boost from the new Phantasy Star Nova title.
