Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, the number of stories is slowing down. Time and developers move on, but I'll always be posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age. Please consider clicking an ad to help my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

Vita sales flat in Japan as Taiko no Tatsujin drums into the charts

Bandai's Taiko no Tatsujin (Drum Master) is the only big entry for the Vita this week in Japan, tapping away at No. 3 with just over 46,000 sales. That's way below the 3DS big hitting duo of a new YoKai Watch and Phoenix Wright, but not bad for a near casual title.

01./00. [3DS] Yo-Kai Watch Busters: Red Cat Team / White Dog Squad (Level 5) - 693.538 / NEW
02./00. [3DS] Great Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - (Capcom)  135.690 / NEW
03./00. [PSV] Taiko no Tatsujin: V Version (Bandai Namco) - 46.101 / NEW

Minecraft sticks in the top 10 for the Vita, shifting another 11,000 plus, and now almost at 250,000 boxed copies. You can see why Square are so keen on their Dragon Quest Builders game. All that action helps the Vita shift another 14,250-ish units in Japan, just down on last week's numbers.
