That’s the end of that, then. The latest Media Create figures show that Monster Hunter’s dropped to fourth place in the Japanese chart, and it looks as though the dominance of the Capcom PSP beast, Mario Kart and Wii Fit is finally starting to crumble. Last week’s figure’s here. Data for week ending June 1. Thanks, NeoGaf.
