The weekly hardware and software sales numbers from Japan are in, courtesy of Media Create, and we’re once again reminded just how nuts Japan is about Animal Crossing. The latest entry in the series, spin-off Happy Home Designer, sold over half a million units at launch, easily beating out Yokai Watch Busters for the top spot. Nothing else even came within one-tenth of its sales numbers for the week.

This was good news for 3DS, as sales nearly doubled from 28,874 to 55,124, most of which came from the New Nintendo 3DS LL (Japan’s name for XL) model. Wii U and PlayStation 4 each saw slightly improved sales over last week, but all other hardware declined slightly. You can check out the full breakdown below:
