While Taiko Drum Master: V Version for PlayStation Vita saw a strong debut in third with 46,000 copies sold, nothing could catch Yo-kai Watch Busters on 3DS, which easily finished in first with 693,000 sold. Way back in second, but still selling 135,000 copies, is The Great Ace Attorney on 3DS.

Despite the strong week for new 3DS games, hardware remained mostly unchanged, with the New 3DS LL rising by 1,500 units. In 2nd and 3rd again are the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita, respectively, each seeing a bit of a drop.
