Weekly Sales Chart: Slow Debuts for Beyond the Labyrinth and Heroes Phantasia

 
More slutty vampire slaying in Onechanbara Z.

Last week was the first full week of releases for the year, with such debuts as Rhythm Thief, Onechanbara Z Kagura, Heroes Phantasia and Beyond the Labyrinth. These games failed to beat Mario Kart 7, which remained in the top spot despite losing much of its holiday season momentum.

Rhythm Thief on 3DS was the top newcomer for the week with 31,598 units sold. Onechanabra Z Kagura on Xbox 360 sold 22,013 units, placing fifth for the week. Also debuting in the top 10, but with sales of under 16,000 units, were PSP anime crossover Heroes Phantasia and tri-Ace 3DS RPG Beyond the Labyrinth.

PlayStation Vita was not represented in the top 20 once again. It had only one release for the week, Wipeout. Vita should make a come back into the top 20 next week as Tales of Innocence R sees release.
