Far Cry 4 debuted in second and sixth place on the chart with the PS4 version moving 36,239 units, and 18,366 more units moved on PS3, respectively, for a combined total of 54,695 units.

Other new releases for the week were: Bladestorm: Nightmare, Ukiyo no Shishi, Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy+ and Psychedelica of the Black Butterfly.

Popular titles such as Tales of Zestiria, Yokai Watch 2: Shinuchi, Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate continued to dominate the top 10.

Only two hardware offers saw an increase in unit sales over the prior week: New 3DS LL and PlayStation 4. Many offerings such as 3DS LL, 3DS, Vita TV and Xbox One were rather flat.

PlayStation Vita declined the most for the period, with 11,871 units moved compared to 14,991 the prior week.
