Super Smash Bros. on 3DS continued its dominance in Japan last week, moving 320,000 units and bringing its two week total to 1.26 million. It was then followed up by Yokai Watch 2 on 3DS, which sold another 56,000 units and is now at 2.52 million lifetime.

Elsewhere, the Nintendo-published Bayonetta 2 debuted in 3rd place, selling nearly 39,000 copies on Wii U. Interestingly, Destiny on PlayStation 3 managed to outsell the PlayStation 4 version last week, but overall, Destiny has sold considerably more on PS4.

Looking at hardware, the PS4 fell from over 23,000 down to 9,000, losing to the 3DS and PS Vita, but beating the Wii U, regular 3DS, PS3, and, by a wide margin, the Xbox One.
