Dominating yet again in Japan last week was Super Smash Bros on Nintendo 3DS, moving another 110,000 units and bringing its lifetime total to over 1.37 million. After Smash Bros, we have a pair of new PlayStation Vita releases in the form of The Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki II and Danganronpa: Another Episode, which debuted to 86,000 and 70,000, respectively.

Over in hardware, the PlayStation Vita saw a modest jump to over 15,000, while the PlayStation 4 fell behind the Wii U and moved 8,000 units. The Xbox One held its ground and only fell by 200 to 1,100 sold.
