Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash isn’t off to the strongest starts in Japan, with Media Create’s weekly sales chart indicating that the Nintendo 3DS exclusive sold 14,096 copies.

That saw it enter the software sales chart in ninth, outpaced by other new releases such as Bandai Namco’s Pro Yakyuu Famista Returns and Sony’s Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection. LEVEL-5’s Yo-kai Watch Busters narrowly remained in the lead, whereas Nintendo will be pleased to see Wii U exclusive’s Super Mario Maker and Splatoon selling steadily.

Hardware sales fell across the board, with PlayStation 4 remaining in pole position after last week’s price cut. Comparatively the Nintendo 3DS family of systems sold 23,566 units collectively, whereas Wii U shifted another 11,594 units.
