  9. Vita TV – 646
  10. Xbox One – 289

While Monster Hunters X keeps selling 3DS units like they were candy, Mario Maker and Splatoon push the Wii U thanks to the bundles, going head to head with the PS4, that keeps being driven by October’s price drop.

Interestingly, Yo-kai Watch Dance had a weak debut, demonstrating that not everything Yo-kai Watch sells like hotcakes in Japan.

This chart also marks the end of an era. It’s the first I see in which absolutely no PS3 game appears. Looks like Japanese Sony fans are just about ready to move to the current generation. Better late than never.
