Monster Hunter 4's dragons roost on top of the Japanese chart, here's what Sony could have won!

If it hadn't let Capcom sidle up next to Nintendo, Sony could be enjoying the biggest title of the year right now (just some of the massive queues, handily ahead of the typhoon now hitting Tokyo). The biggest hit in Japan was always going to be for the new Monster Hunter and Sony somehow let it slide off the PSP into uncharted territory. Despite Capcom's one-time promise of platform neutrality, and the rather weedy-looking Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on the 3DS, here it is selling many millions in just a day or two. Expect the full chart on Wednesday to reveal just how insane 3DS and MH4 sales will be.

On the plus side, Vita owners do have God Eater 2, Freedom Wars and a revamped Soul Sacrifice to look forward to, but nothing sweeps Japan quite like a bit of Monster Hunter.
  1. Monster Hunter 4 – 3DS
  2. AKB1/149 Renai Sosenkyo (limited edition) - PS3
  3. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle – PS3
  4. Splinter Cell: Blacklist – PS3
  5. AKB1/149 Renai Sosenkyo - PS3
  6. Brothers Conflict: Brilliant Blue – PSP
  7. Disney Magic Castle: My Happy Life – 3DS
  8. Mario & Luigi: Dream Team – 3DS
  9. Killzone: Mercenary – PS Vita
  10. Puppeteer – PS3
  11. Ragnarok Odyssey Ace – PS Vita
In the UK chart, Killzone slides down to No. 15 in the all-formats chart but continues to dominate the Vita chart. Rayman Legends I guess most people brought on the big screen FIFA 13 is nearly a year old which means it is just about to be replaced by the equally lazy FIFA 14 update.
  1. KILLZONE: MERCENARY SONY 1 2
  2. ASSASSIN'S CREED III LIBERATION UBISOFT 3 46
  3. RAYMAN LEGENDS UBISOFT 2 2
  4. NEED FOR SPEED MOST WANTED EA GAMES 5 46
  5. FIFA 13 EA SPORTS 4 51
