Nintendo continue to see hardware and software success across their home territory, with Youkai Watch 2 and the 3DS LL continuing to lead the pack by a significant margin.

LEVEL-5’s 3DS exclusive sold another 143,777 to top the chart, with life-to-date sales now sitting at 1,973,310 copies. While the 3DS LL and 3DS sold 31,740 and 7,019 units respectively, seeing Nintendo’s handheld shift another 38,759 units to consumers that week.

Wii U hardware sales are holding steady, and will hopefully see an uptick when console exclusive Hyrule Warriors launches in Japan on August 16th. Mario Kart 8 is similarly selling steadily, maintaining third position in the chart having sold 18,067 copies in the past week.
