Oddly enough Akiba's Trip is most annoying game I've reviewed in a while on the Vita. Not because it isn't fun, but because of the poor fighting mechanic. Still, the rest of the game is a bit of quirky blast and its clearly attracting buyers as it hits No. 2 on the UK's Vita retail chart.
Not much action elsewhere. It didn't make the all-formats top 40, so actual sales are probably pretty tiny. The PS3 version only managed to hit 23 in that format's chart. See the latest trailer if you want to know what the big deal is. Last week's new entry, Natural Doctrine has dropped straight out of the chart.

Over on Amazon's Best Sellers, Akiba's barely makes the top 20, while Minecraft is still tops even though the physical version won't be out for a month after the download edition. FIFA 15 is in second for the long haul, while pre-orders for Tales of Hearts R and Freedom Wars continue to see them stick high up in the chart. Beyond November and Hatsune Miku and Arcana Hearts 3, things look very bleak indeed.
