It was another big week for the 3DS, with Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer debuting in first with over 520,000 in sales. Right after it, Yo-kai Watch Busters moved 108,000 copies and crossed the 1.1 million lifetime mark.

The PlayStation Vita saw a few new titles in the top 10, with IA/VT Colorful in third after selling 39,000 copies, Date A Live: Twin Edition Rio Reincarnation in sixth with 13,000, and Ray Gigant in ninth with 8,700.

On the hardware side, the PlayStation 4 rose by over 1,000 units, but nothing could catch the Nintendo 3DS LL, which more than doubled its sales to 45,000.
