Ys VIII vies for the top of the Japanese Chart

Falcom's latest Ys RPG, Lacrimosa of Dana, sits at No. 2 in the Media Create chart on entry, shifting plenty of physical copies, but still way behind the still lingering Yokai Watch phenomena. The update to Stranger of Sword City also battles into the top 10, while visual novel 7 Scarlet just about squeaks into the top 20.

01./01. [3DS] Yo-Kai Watch 3: Sushi / Tempura (Level 5) - 168.782 / 800.918 (-73%)
02./00. [PSV] Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana (Falcom) - 43.753 / NEW
...
08./00. [PSV] New Interpretation Stranger of Sword City (Experience) 7.248 / NEW
...
12./09. [PSV] Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition (Mojang) - 5.744 / 829.979 (-6%)
...
16./00. [PSV] 7'scarlet (Idea Factory) 3.128 / NEW
17./20. [PSV] Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball 2016 (Konami) 2.961 / 159.388 (+3%)
...
20./11. [PSV] Coven and Labyrinth of Refrain (NIS) 2.733 / 42.519 (-48%)


For all that activity, around 60,000 total game sales, Vita sales go up by only around 400, barely a dent. This elongated flat patch is an increasing sign that Sony needs to something soon after the Summer holiday to kick start interest in hardware, be in new colours, or limited edition models. There were some Ys VIII Vita models, but they were exclusive to the Sony store.
