Holiday rush in Japan sees Vita sales jump 10K

Some good news for blog post 5,500. While Monster Hunting still dominates Japan's Media Create chart, Vita hardware sales jump by around 10,000 as holiday sales kick in. There's no major new releases to support that jump, but the recent Famitsu reviews show lots of good stuff to come.

Minecraft is still digging it out in the top 10, with sales back over 11,100 while Umaru: Dried Fish Sister (surely a translation error) sneaks in at 15, selling just 6,000.

If it spikes up like previous years to the end of the year, with plenty of big Japanese games to come, the Vita's Japanese future, and us western hang-ons, seems pretty bright.
