Freedom Wars retained the No.1 spot on the Japanese software chart during the week ended July 6.
Developed by SCE Japan Studio and recently confirmed for release in the west, the action game is set 100,000 years in the future in a world called Panopticon, where population growth and precious resources like oil have significantly decreased.
The Vita exclusive sold a further 43,000 copies in its second week of availability, while the PS4 and PS3 editions of Watch Dogs charted at No.5 and No.6 respectively in a quiet week for new releases.
3DS remained the best-selling hardware platform ahead of Vita, which shifted twice as many units as the top-performing home console, Wii U, according to data from retail monitor Media Create, which was republished on NeoGAF.
