It certainly is an exciting week for Video Game Software, especially for Team Blue as we see several new releases from the PlayStation line-up making onto the chart for the week. Yet, the one that claims the top spot for the week is Nintendo’s own Nabi-tsuki! Tsukutte Wakaru Hajimete Game Programming at 71,241 copies sold. For those of you interested to see what the game is all about, be sure to check out the promotional video below. The game reminds me Scratch, a programming platform which serves an educational purpose, using block-like interface allowing people to make their own stories, games and animations.

It is quite unfortunate that the lack of PlayStation 5 consoles to go around could not help push Final Fantasy VII Remake: Intergrade and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart further up, the two places 2nd and 3rd for the week. Since PlayStation 4 owner of the Final Fantasy VII Remake can upgrade it to the Intergrade version for free, it could be that sales were not captured, hence the lower sales. Ninja Gaiden: Master Collection and Guilty Gear -Strive- are the other two new releases making onto the list with 12,210 copies and 11,722 copies sold respectively. Do note that the two titles are also available on Steam.
