Vita sales firm in Japan and latest Famitsu reviews

Vita sales remained surprisingly firm in Japan last week, with sales down just 80ish on a week where PS4 new releases and solid Switch performance dominate the Media Create chart. Related to the Vita, Dragon's Crown Pro entered the chart for PS4 at No. 11, selling 11,200 copies which, with strong original Vita sales might be enough interest for a proper sequel.

In bonus news, Toby Fox's Undertale is going down a storm in Japan, clocking up 100,000 digital sales across PS Vita and PS4 in six months. Search Undertale on Twitter and see the continuing rabid amount of Japanese interest. That means the May physical LE release should get a great response. Also hopefully, Japanese publishers 8-4 will be looking for other western titles it can sell over there.

Over in Famitsu, solid scores all round for a bunch of random-sounding Vita visual novels this week. The Vitamin X release is a 10th anniversary edition, while the others are the usual schoolgirl travails.

Harukanaru Toki no Naka de Ultimate – 9/8/8/9 [34/40] (Koei) Visual novel
Vitamin X Destination – 8/8/8/8 [32/40] (D3) Visual novel
Kimi no Hitomi ni Hit Me – 7/8/8/8 [31/40] (Giga) Visual novel
Ouka Sabaki Zan – 8/8/8/7 [31/40] (Dramatic Create) Visual novel

Virtual On: A Certain Magical Index is out this week, which might help nudge Vita sales along.
