    Here are the Media Create sales figures for Week #30 2018:

    New entry Mega Man X Legacy Collection for PS4 debuts at #1 for week 30, but only manages 29k units (45k if we combine the Switch SKU), enough to knock last week's Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum 'n' Fun! from the top spot, into second place.
    Vita also get's a new release; Collar x Malice: Unlimited sells 7k and charts at #10 - an updated version of 2017's visual novel.
    Higurashi no Naku Koro ni Hou releases for Nintendo Switch at #11, and Dragon Quest X: All in One Package Ver.1-4 debuts at #20, moving only 4k copies for its launch.

    Hardware numbers are down across the board, with Switch dropping 5k when compared to last week's figures.

    Jesus, is Splatoon 2 still up there in the top 3? It's remained there for a whole year now.

    I need to see Higurashi on the Switch coming west. I'd also love to see the new Collar X Malice see an English Switch release, but that might be asking too much lol.

    I just really want the Switch to be the new go to system for VNs.

    Could that be because of the shortage of physical copies? I remember seeing the official Twitter for the game apologising for that.

    Keep in mind that Octopath is sold out worldwide, so if someone wanted to buy a physical copy, they quite literally can't. I bet that explains why Octopath dropped off so hard.

    I just been reminded that Dragon Quest X is coming soon. :yayswitch:

    Also shocked how the Mega Man X Legacy Collection didn't sell more on switch. Then again, having a forced download code for it unlike the other consoles is possible. :blink:

    Good Job Capcom :creep:

    Also about Octopath, I think people got bored of it quick, probably didn't play that long when they figured out the game has you pick a starting point, play from there, go to next character starting point, play through their story, move on; rinse & repeat process until all 8 are united. I could see how that maybe off putting to some and may not even go much further thinking if the game could have more to offer cause the pacing at the start is already figured out before you play much longer.

    I had mine on preorder until I heard the news about them separating them. I'll probably just pick up a used copy that makes it worth it, or buy the digital version if it ever goes on sale.

    Well if the previous mega man collection was anything to go by, yeah they was gonna separate them too. :P

    I'm still happy i got the collection on switch. But really wish they Included Mega Man X Command mission and Maverick Hunter X, it is a legacy collection, having as much as possible is probably the best. :)

    I read an article last night or yesterday or something that if you count the NES and SNES minis as systems and the sales that they are outselling all the other consoles combined. (the NES one is still selling out almost immediately when it hits shelves from what I understand.)
