The New Nintendo 2DS XL was Japan's biggest selling piece of hardware for the last week in Japan, according to Famitsu.

The newest member of the 3DS family shifted 36,860 units in its first week on sale, and was accompanied by new releases Hey! Pikmin (79,517) and Ever Oasis (15,907).

Elsewhere, stock shortages resulted in a 30 percent drop in sales for the Nintendo Switch, which was in second place with 25,154 units. In third was the PS4 with 21,579 consoles sold, while the New Nintendo 3DS XL managed 9,241 units. If you combine the sales of the PS4 with its more powerful sibling the PS4 Pro, then total sales for Sony's platform were 28,793 - putting it in second place, ahead of the Switch.
