Vita sales back to flat in Japan

The latest Media Create data is out in Japan, don't get too excited now!

We have a duplicate of last week really, with sales nudging up by a few and one new middling Vita game arriving in the lower reaches of the chart. Can't see many people rushing out to buy visual novel Shinobi, Koi Utsutsu from Idea Factory, which managed to sell 4,629 to land at No. 18 as the only Vita game on the chart.

Trails of Cold Steel III landed at No. 1 on the PS4, but without a Vita or PS3 version in support, Falcom lost half of their sales, based on the 2013/2014 releases. That will be pretty damning for Falcom, who had no real reason to drop the Vita version for a few extra shaders and world with a slightly larger scope. Still, there's no guarantee it would come west on Vita, so perhaps irrelevant.
