PS Vita also does huge numbers.
After the reported success of the PlayStation Vita and Nintendo Wii U, especially the latter which saw Super Mario Maker and Splatoon average more than 60K units each, Media Create’s charts revealed the best-selling games and consoles for the week past in Japan.
Monster Hunter X is on top with 149,587 units sold followed by Monster Strike with 140,479 units (and no, there’s no relation between the two). Super Mario Maker sold 68,523 units on the Wii U while Splatoon sold 60,991 units for the week. Yo-Kai Watch Busters: Akaneko-dan/Shiroinu-tai on the 3DS managed to sell 56,819 units this week.
Hardware sales were also exceptionally strong for the New Year. The New Nintendo 3DS XL sold 82,675 units followed by the PlayStation Vita with 77,926 units, the PlayStation 4 with 70,596 units, the Nintendo Wii U with 55,798 units and the New Nintendo 3DS with 23,895 units.
