This week's Japanese charts are in and despite the Wii U only being two weeks old and a resurgance in sales from PS3 and PS Vita, the Nintendo 3DS still managed to outsell every other system's combined sales.
What a week it's been for the 3DS, shifting a mightily impressive 319.025 units, truly incredible stuff. In fact it even surpassed the figure for Wii U's launch, selling more than Nintendo's flagship console did when it released last week.
On the software side 3DS rules as you would expect, with Level 5's Inazuma Eleven topping the charts, while the new Animal Crossing title takes second spot. Continuing the 3DS dominance is Paper Mario in third spot, while Yakuza 5 takes fourth for PS3 and New Super Mario Bros U gives the Wii U some hope in fifth place.
