Following two weeks at #1, Freedom Wars finished in 2nd place last week, selling over 20,000 units. This wasn’t enough to come remotely close to the launch of Yokai Watch 2 on 3DS though, as that debuted to over 1.3 million copies sold, which is actually more than the lifetime sales of the first Yokai Watch. As for the first Yokai Watch, that managed a 3rd place finish, moving another 19,000 copies.

On the hardware side of things, the 3DS received a big boost thanks to Yokai Watch 2, while the PlayStation Vita more than doubled its previous week and moved nearly 39,000 units.
