Unsurprisingly, Yo-Kai Watch Busters on 3DS took home first place again in Japan, selling another 221,000 and bringing its two-week total to 914,000.

Right after Yo-Kai Watch, Batman: Arkham Knight debuted for the PlayStation 4 with 49,000 copies sold, while Yoshi’s Woolly World on Wii U finished in third after selling over 31,000 copies.

Likely thanks to Arkham Knight, PS4 console sales rose to 24,000, putting it well ahead of the 3DS as it captured first place for the week.
