Yokai Watch 2: Shinuchi launched in Japan on December 13, and it's been the top-selling game in that market ever since, selling over 2.4 million units in just a few weeks. However, the popular series was knocked all the way down to number four this week, as PlayStation 3's Tales of Zestria took the top spot, and The Legend of Legacy and Kirby and the Rainbow Curse both debuted ahead of Yokai Watch as well. In all, seven new titles debuted on Japan's top twenty this week, but hardware sales still declined on every platform across the board except PlayStation 3. Hit the jump for the complete numbers!

Xenoblade Chronicles had a massively expansive expanse that would leave players in a trance. The world was absolutely gargantuan, as if not one, but two giant gods clashed together and created it. Wait... Well, the game's sequel Xenoblade Chronicles X is even bigger. In fact, it's so big that Nintendo almost considered using more than one disk for the game.

Xenoblade Chronicles X clocks in at nearly twenty-five gigabytes of memory. That's over three-quarters of a Wii U's internal storage! This is one you won't want to download if you don't have an external hard drive. What's more, apparently the game is so big that developer Monolith Soft considered using two disks.

Every so often, Nintendo compiles a list of titles that have exceeded one million units, which I suppose must feel pretty nice to be able to do. The Big N has recently compiled a new one for the three-quarter period of April 2014 through December 2014, and it includes twelve (or fourteen, depending on whether or not you want to count Pokémon pairs as separate or not) games. Four are for the Wii U, while the rest help show the 3DS's enormous presence. Unsurprisingly, given all the demand for them, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire stand firm at the top with an impressive 9.35 million units sold during the period, though they are beaten out by Mario Kart 7 and Pokémon X and Y's life-to-date sales.
