Super Mario Maker has made its début in Japan and has claimed the top spot in this week's Media Create Sales charts. The DIY platformer has sold 138,242 copies in its first week on sale.

In second place is Capcom's 3DS exclusive Monster Hunter Diary: Poka Poka Airou Village DX, which is also a new title this week. That managed to clear 59,456 copies.

More 3DS titles can be found at fourth (Dragon Quest VIII) and fifth (Yo-kai Watch Busters). Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer in is seventh place with 20,733, while Rhythm Heaven: The Best+ rounds out the top ten with 7,079 units sold.

Splatoon is the only other Wii U game in the top 10, and is holding on at eight with 17,490 sales. That game has now shifted well over half a million units in its homeland, which is remarkable considering the Japanese apathy towards online, team-based shooters.
