Media Create Japanese Sales for week ending March 25th, 2012

PPNSteve's picture

This week’s Media Create software chart sees five new entries in the top ten, led by Kid Icarus: Uprising on the 3DS. It’s been 21 years since the last Kid Icarus title appeared on the Game Boy so it’s wonderful to see the series being reintroduced with a quality title like Kid Icarus: Uprising.Media Create

Black Panther 2: Yakuza Ashura Chapter comes in at number two on the chart. The latest portable Yakuza titles appears to retain many of the same elements from the original PSP game, including graphic novel style cut-scenes and the usual assortment of hostesses to romance.

Further down the list we see the Devil May Cry HD Collection and Ninja Gaiden 3 in fourth and fifth position respectively. I’m sure NinjaGaiden 3 would have sold a lot more copies if it had been better reviewed as Ninja Gaiden games traditionally perform well in Japan.

01./00. [3DS] Kid Icarus: Uprising <ACT> (Nintendo) {2012.03.22} (¥5.800) - 132.526 / NEW <77,49%>

PPNSteve's picture

Hey guys, in case you haven’t realized it from the last few years, March is Metal Month.

March is Metal Month - 2012

For four years now, the guys at EMI Label Services and Caroline Distribution have been celebrating the releases on the labels they distribute, which include Century Media, Nuclear Blast, Candlelight, Earache, Elm City, Season of Mist, Prospect Park and more. The real meat of what this is about is working with independent record stores to help support metal.

The campaign encourages consumers to connect with their independent music retailers to access goodies such as a special CD sampler (get the March is Metal Month - 2012 Sampler), a limited edition T-shirt designed by artist Rich Hall, exclusive prizes and more.

March is Metal Month continues the tradition of working with the best rock labels to showcase top tracks from their roster of talent. This year's sampler includes the tracks 'Undaunted' from Adrenaline Mob's upcoming album 'Omerta'; Swedish extreme metal band Meshuggah's 'The Demon's Name is Silence' and Five Finger Death Punch have added their previously digital-only release 'The Tragic Truth'. Fans of Southern hardcore metal band Corrosion Of Conformity are in for a treat with their track 'The Money Changers' also included - their first release in 25 years.
