Bandai Namco’s Vita title moved 145,029 copies followed by Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call’s debut in second place – which likely helped boost 3DS sales.

Other debuts, Famicom Remix 1+2 for Wii U and BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma came in fifth and sixth, respectively.

Monster Hunter Frontier GG Premium Package, Maple Story: Maiden of Fate, If You Thought It Was Harem Paradise It Was Yandere Hell and Muv-Luv: Photonflowers debuts landed in the bottom 10.
