Once again Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS tops the Japanese software charts, boosting the physical sales well on the way toward 1.5 million units.

Elsewhere in the charts we can see that Fatal Frame: Oracle of the Sodden Raven (known as 'Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden' outside of Japan) has had a relatively successful first week landing itself at number seven.

Overall it's a fairly solid week for Nintendo's consoles, but Sony's systems are getting significantly more releases right now, meaning that Nintendo will have to get games out thick and fast in order to keep up with the sheer quantity of games for the Playstation consoles.

Hardware sales this week are a little lower than before for the 3DS LL, but given that the Smash Bros. hype is beginning to die down for the 3DS version in Japan it's little surprise that sales have suffered.

The Wii U gains a little ground with an additional 1,500 units sold compared to last week, and as the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros. looms ever closer the prospects for the Wii U are beginning to look a little brighter.

See these figures below for yourself, the previous week's sales are in brackets.

1. 3DS LL – 22,988 (35,622)
2. PlayStation Vita – 15,739 (11,148)
