Not even a debut of over 93,000 for Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines on PlayStation Vita could stop Yokai Watch 2, which followed up its 1.3 million performance two weeks ago by moving another 331,000 copies last week.

Despite the success of Yokai Watch 2, the 3DS hardware fell by over 23,000 units, while the PlayStation Vita dropped over 11,000. Elsewhere in hardware, the Wii U once again defeated the PlayStation 3, and the PS3 outsold the PlayStation 4 by a fair margin.

Here’s how each system sold, along with the top 20 selling games in Japan between July 14 and July 20, 2014, according to Media Create:
