The Monthly Top Ten: Dec 1st - Dec 31st!


Every month, Play-Asia.com ships out a lot of products, but a few really stand out. As a new feature, we'd like to share with you which products were the most popular from November 1st to November 30st. Whether released or still in pre-order, perhaps these are the products you might want to add to your personal agent!

For more information on each specific product, find it through the link in the picture!


[10] GUNDAM BREAKER (PS Vita)

As the sequel to the extremely popular Gundam Breaker, it's no surprise that this Gundam meta-game took to our charts this month. Based on building your very own Gundam model and sending them into action packed 3D battle in various fictional and real life locations - including the famous Gundam Cafe in Akihabara, this genius title took the very elements made Gundam the global success it is today. 

With over 10 BILLION combinations of Gunpla through Bandai Namco's Build-A-Gundam feature, and benefiting from the portable nature of the Vita, this is the new and improved version of a Gundam fan's dream! (GPB-04B BEARGGUY's head on every Gundam is ours...)


[9] AMIIBO SUPER SMASH BROS. SERIES FIGURE (MARTH)

Perhaps it's the subliminal residue left behind from chants of "MARTH, MARTH, MARTH" on previous Smash Bros. games, or the world has sudden Fire Emblem love, but it's undeniable that the Marth amiibo is one of the most sought after items on the market.

The real reason though, is that Marth was one of three super rare figures in the first wave in the amiibo line with no news from Nintendo regarding a reprint - as such, the only other place people will be able to find Marth is on the grey markets of the internet.

 


[8] CONTROLLER ADAPTER FOR WII U + WHITE GC CONTROLLER

Another Nintendo product, the Classic Gamecube controller has been getting ALOT of exposure lately. Especially with the APEX 2015 tournament and post-Smash Bros. for the WiiU, many Gamers have been looking for a way to capture the nostalgia of what is considered to be the "perfect" controller of all time for Smash Bros

But with Nintendo's shortage of it's 1st party adaptor, our collaboration with periperhal makers Mayflash has filled the void, and there has been quite a bit of media coverage about this bundle. Best of all, this adapter isn't exclusively linked with SSB, and can be used with a pre-existing library of Nintendo games.


[7] NINTENDO 3DS XL (PIKACHU YELLOW EDITION)

One cannot deny the power of the almighty Pikachu.

Number one on our list for November, the demand for a Pikachu 3DS is still quite high. Perhaps it's the rarity, or perhaps it's due to the current Pokecraze as of the Pokemon Alpha Sapphire/Omega Ruby release.

And while the price outside is more inflated than a Qwilfish, all we know is that we've kept it at a price much lower than anyone else right now, and we plan to keep it that way until these adorable Pikachu 3DSes find a home.


[6] GUNDAM BREAKER (PlayStation 3)

Now if the PS Vita version above is popular, then the PlayStation 3 version would naturally lead between the two - just by userbase alone, the PS3 still has a huge market share in the console world regardless of generation, and Gundam games have traditionally recieved extremely high demand for this console.

With 1-4 Online multiplayer for it's gamut of modes, it's just always more fun with friends who share the same enthusiam for these famous mechas.

 


[5] RESIDENT EVIL HD REMASTER

Number 5 for the third time! It goes to show that some games can indeed be considered a classic. With additions to suit contemporary tastes, word is spreading more and more on how this Remaster is a must play for all RE and survival horror fans.

1) The Japanese Version also has English and Japanese Voice and Text Options
2) The jacket cover of the game is reversible and features "BIOHAZARD"
3) There are also several language options: French, Italian, Spanish, & German
4) This is the only known physical version
5) The bonuses on disc are a great added value for fans of RE


[4] PLAYSTATION VITA MEMORY CARD (64GB)

While the 16GB card that comes prepackaged with a brand new Vita is nice, once people realize that digital purchases on the console really unlocks the portability, then the only cure is more memory. 

The 64GB is currently the biggest storage solution for the Vita, and with the influx of new games as well as the "free" PSN+ giveaways, it's only natural that so many Vita owners have adapted towards more space.

 


THE TOP 3, AGAIN: 

The chart is once again dominated by the 3 PAL Australian New Nintendo 3DS! Again! 3 times in a row!

HONORARY MENTION: 

GAMECUBE CONTROLLER ADAPTER FOR WII U & PC USB

Though it's only the beginning of the year, this Mayflash adapter version of the Nintendo 1st party Gamecube Controller Adapter is an extremely in demand item, especially since Nintendo made so few of the original with no real news of when to expect a restock. 

We can expect this to be on the top of our list for next month - until then!

Happy Gaming, Gamers!
