Natural sadness for Natural Doctrine.

Natural Doctrine

This week’s Japanese sales numbers are in. And they’re low across the board.

Mario Party: Island Tour is on top this week with an additional 47,000 sales, followed by the PlayStation 3 version of Samurai Warriors 4 at 25,000 sales.

The top-selling new release this week is Just Dance Wii U, which only moved 18,000 units. Natural Doctrine also launched for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita, but only the PS Vita version made the top 20 with 6,000 copies sold. Yikes!

On the hardware side, most sales dropped to half of what they sold last week. PS Vita is on top with 25,000 sold (though, 3DS technically bests it with its combined 22,000 XL and 9,000 standard units), and PlayStation 4 sales dropped to 13,000.
