Child of Light 

Aside from Yokai Watch 2 selling nearly 144,000 and sitting right near 2 million sold already, last week was slow for Japan, with the biggest new release (a 3DS game) debuting to just 6,700, while the biggest PlayStation game, Child of Light on PlayStation Vita, moved under 4,000 copies.

Over on hardware, the 3DS XL was #1 yet again, with the PS Vita #2, despite dropping by over 4,000 units. Elsewhere, the PlayStation 3 suffered a small drop and the PlayStation 4 saw a small uptick, but neither were able to beat the regular 3DS.
