Yokai Watch 2 Finally Stripped of its Top Position – 3DS & Wii U Sales Steady

It'll probably be back up there next week

Yokai Watch 2 has finally lost its crown, dropping down to third place behind two Sony exclusives. It's a shame that it's been bested, but a game cannot stay at number one forever.

Elsewhere in the charts Mario Kart 8 still holds its own whilst Hyrule Warriors drops down to number 14, but still with reasonable sales.

The past week appears to be largely dominated by Sony software, but considering that there were eight new releases between the PS3, PS4, and the PS Vita that have ended up in the charts, the lack of Nintendo-themed titles isn't anything to fret about too much.

Hardware sales are steady. Both of Nintendo's systems haven't changed much compared to last week, The 3DS LL is still in first place, but with the news of the New 3DS systems being released later this year in Japan, sales may well decline as consumers decide wait for the new system to be released.

3DS LL – 30,111 (28,788)
PlayStation Vita – 19,578 (15,309)
Wii U – 8,584 (8,985)
PlayStation 3 – 7,895 (2,376)
