With the only new release last week, Atelier Deco la Doll Collection on 3DS, failing to chart, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer was able to stay at #1 yet again, moving another 140,000 copies. Right behind it, Yo-kai Watch Busters sold 100,000 copies and is now over 1.3 million lifetime.

After Splatoon and Rhythm Heaven: The Best+ continued to be strong in 3rd and 4th, respectively, Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition was once again a steady performer, moving nearly 12,000 units and putting itself a week away from selling 300,000 lifetime.

Despite a lack of new releases, every single piece of hardware saw a sales increase (save for the Xbox One), with the PlayStation 4 up 3,900 to 18,500 and the PlayStation Vita up 4,500 to 17,400.
