Tekken Tag 2 steals number one in Japan

3DS and 3DS XL continue to dominate hardware sales

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 debuted at number one in the Japanese charts last week, Siliconera reports.

According to data from Media Create, Namco Bandai's new fighting game sold 62, 630 units during the seven-day period ending September 16. Rocket Company's Medabots 7: Kabuto/Kuwagata entered the chart in second place, selling just under 50,000 units.

However, it was a slow week for hardware, with the Nintendo 3DS XL retaining the top spot despite only a marginal increase in sales to 35,870 - the regular 3DS sold 25,033 units. Following its dramatic spike at the start of the month, Sony's PlayStation Vita has returned to a relatively low weekly figure of just below 11,000 units.
