Japanese Vita sales tailing off until Freedom Wars

Japan's sales dropped backed to normal, after their holidays, but the overall numbers were well down on last year thanks to few big releases. Even so, the Vita, selling 18,500 on the week (1,300 of which were Vita TV), continues to track slightly above its performance in 2013, but with nothing much out until Freedom Wars in late June (and Panzer Girls), expect things to stay quiet.

Sword Art Online (now confirmed for a western release) continues to sell well, in fourth place in the Media Create chart, selling another 16,000 units and likely to have passed 200,000 including digital sales.
