Sword Art Online slashes to No. 1 in Japan

Namco's Sword Art Online outsells the next three games in the chart combined, storming in at the top spot of Media Create's latest chart. With BlazBlue kicking and punching its way in at No. 7 as a slightly delayed Vita release, and with Super Robot Wars sticking around at No. 8, things look pretty happy for the Vita.

01./00. [PSV] Sword Art Online: Hollow Fragment # (Bandai Namco Games) {2014.04.24} (¥6.664) - 145.029 / NEW
02./00. [3DS] Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call #
(Square Enix) {2014.04.24} (¥6.264) - 80.523 / NEW
03./01. [3DS] Yo-kai Watch
(Level 5) {2013.07.11} (¥4.800) - 43.136 / 798.046 (+24%)...
07./00. [PSV] BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma
(Arc System Works) {2014.04.24} (¥6.264) - 10.709 / NEW
08./06. [PSV] 3rd Super Robot Wars Z: Jigoku-Hen
(Bandai Namco Games) {2014.04.10} (¥7.689) - 8.678 / 154.669 (-51%)

Hardware sales get a decent boost with just under 5,000 more units sold than last week's recent low. Hopefully the green line will rocket up as Golden Week sales kick in across Japan. Perhaps the PS4 and Vita TV firmware update will help goose sales of Sony's little box next week to support the Vita effort?
