We’ve got 14 glorious minutes of footage from the PlayStation 4 version of the game for you all to watch and it looks like it’s shaping up rather nicely.

Japan: Nintendo 3DS Sells 26K And Wii U Sells 6K

This week’s Japanese software and hardware charts are in courtesy of Media Create. There was only one new release this week which was the critically acclaimed Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin for the PlayStation 4. You probably guessed that the Nintendo 3DS was the best-selling format as per-usual and it would seem as though the Wii U is suffering from a lack of new releases. That should change soon as the format is getting Xenoblade Chronicles X which should give it a good push. Here’s the best-selling software and hardware this week in Japan.
