The only new release last week to crack the top 20 was Ratchet & Clank for PlayStation 4, which debuted in 3rd overall and sold 27,500 copies. Earlier this year when Ratchet & Clank launched in the West, it became the fastest-selling game in franchise history.

Since 3DS games continued to dominate the software chart, it was another big win for the New 3DS LL in terms of hardware, outselling the second place PS4 by 7,000 units.
