Nintendo’s 3DS XL and 3DS still hold a strong grip over the top spots for hardware sales in Japan, but the software side doesn’t appear to be much different. Monster Games’ port of Donkey Kong Country Returns for the 3DS debuted in the country this week, and is currently at number 1 with 104,569 units sold according to the latest charts by Media Create (via Gematsu).

But that’s not all: The top 5 consists solely of 3DS titles, with Tomodachi Collection: New Life raking in 43,372 with 1,133,246 units sold over a lifetime; Chousoku Henkei Gyrozetter: Albatross no Tsubasa, the other new entry on the charts, selling 17,925 units; Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon selling 14,949 units, with lifetime sales of 781,660 units; and finally, Animal Crossing: New Leaf sold 14,393 units, notching up an impressive 3,278,356 units sold over its lifetime.

The 3DS’s dominance is set to continue into the next year as Nintendo has revealed several AAA franchises that will be coming to the platform, including Zelda, Super Smash Bros. and more.
