The weekly hardware and software sales numbers for Japan are in, and Fire Emblem Fates is off to a blazing hot start. The normal game sold over 260,000 units, and the special edition sold just shy of 43,000. In total, the game sold 303,666 units at launch, topping the charts. By comparison, Fire Emblem Awakening sold 242,600 at launch. Sales of Fates gave 3DS a boost of about 8,000 extra hardware units sold.

Persona 4: Dancing All Night also launched this week, and the Vita title came in second place with over 94,000 units sold. That was enough to double Vita sales for the week, but combined sales of 3DS units were still higher than Sony’s handheld. You can check out the full breakdown below:
