2015 is wrapped up, and popular Japanese gaming publication Famitsu has decided to take a look back at last year’s final sales numbers. If you’ve been following the weekly sales reports out of Japan, it shouldn’t surprise you to hear that Nintendo was 2015’s big winner. Nintendo 3DS was the top hardware for the year, selling 2,189,900 units (nearly 1 million more sales than second place PlayStation 4 for the year), and Wii U sold over 800,000 units.

In software,
Monster Hunter X was the top game for the year with over 2.4 million sales, even though it only had about one month on the market. The top ten was entirely dominated by Nintendo games, including eight 3DS games, Splatoon, and Super Mario Maker. You can check out the full breakdown below.
