The weekly hardware and software sales number are in from Japan, and Nintendo’s new IP is a hit! The ink-fueled fun-fest known as Splatoon debuted at number one in Japan, selling 144,818 units, and it would have sold even more, but most retailers quickly sold out.

This provided Wii U with a nice little sales boost, jumping by almost 10,000 units over last week. Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX on 3DS took second place, but no other new titles were able to crack the 20,000 mark. You can check out the full breakdown below.
