Media Create Japanese Sales for week ending February 26th
A rash of new entries has dominated the Japanese top twenty this week, with the top six titles all newly released.
Once again, the PSP takes top spot with Namco Bandai's Tales of the Heroes Twin Brave, selling over 85,000 units to pip the newest Harvest Moon title, a 3DS exclusive, to the top of the chart.
Namco Bandai took third and fourth too, with a new PS3 Naruto title and I Have Few Friends Portable for PSP. Capcom's Asura's Wrath managed fifth, whilst Namco bracketed the new releases at the top of the chart with another PSP title, Nendoroid Generation, in sixth.
Hardware positions remained unchanged except for the 360 overtaking the PS2 after last week's resurgence for the ageing platform. 3DS is still the clear market leader for the territory, selling nearly three times as many units as nearest rival the PS3.

Japanese software chart February 20 - 26, 2012. Figures in brackets are lifetime sales
This week’s Media Create hardware chart holds few surprises as far as positions are concerned. The 3DS still rules the roost with 76,322 units sold during the last week while the PS3 received a slight boost in sales to secure second spot with a tally of 27,111 units.
The PSP continues to outsell the PS Vita which is understandable when you look at the Japanese release schedules for the two handhelds. Hopefully developer support for Sony’s new portable rapidly gains traction because the system needs a lot more quality games before it can begin to match the pace of the PSP during its first year on sale in Japan.
