Burning Blood boils to the top of the chart in Japan

The PS4 version of One Piece Burning Blood managed to outsell the Vita version by a nearly 3,000 units as Japan gets back to buying games. There were a hefty five new Vita releases to keep Minecraft company, with Bullet Girls 2 and a pair of Otome titles kicking around the chart.

The latest update to Phantasy Star Online 2 sold a rather poor 7,000 physical copies, according to Media Create, helping to build up the game's user base very slowly. The Episode 3 release managed over 25,000 sales.

01./00. [PS4] One Piece: Burning Blood (Bandai Namco) - 35.496
02./00. [PSV] One Piece: Burning Blood (Bandai Namco ) - 32.682
...
04./00. [PSV] Bullet Girls 2 (D3) - 17.224
...
11./00. [PSV] Phantasy Star Online 2 Episode 4: Deluxe (Sega) - 7.043
12./00. [PSV] Nil Admirari no Tenbin  (Idea Factory) - 6.987
...
15./07. [PSV] Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition (Mojang) - 6.254 / 743.558 (-3%)
...
18./00. [PSV] Kamigami no Asobi InFinite (Broccoli) {2016.04.21} (¥5.800) - 4.828

Despite all that, Vita sales remained flat in Japan, up just a couple of hundred despite the new entries. This week sees Rose and the Old Castle from NIS and Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball 2016 from Konami landing, which probably won't help to spark hardware sales.
