The sales numbers for this week in Japan are in, and nothing can even come close to unseating Yokai Watch 2. The game sold over 1.3 million in its debut, and it sold well over 330,000 this week, beating out the competition by a long shot. This helped 3DS stay ahead of Vita again this week, despite a new game launch and a discount bundle being offered.

Elsewhere Wii U and PlayStation 4 each saw their sales decline, with PlayStation 4 continuing to sell less units per week than its predecessor. PSP numbers have dwindled down to almost nothing, as there are no new shipments of the device in Japan. Hit the jump to catch the full breakdown.

GameStop teased that they will have a "big announcement for a big game tomorrow" on their Facebook page earlier today alongside a pixelated image of something relating to the game.

The image appears to be hinting at an Assassin's Creed announcement tomorrow, possibly for the last-gen title in development (rumored to be Assassin's Creed: Comet). The image clearly appears to be an assassin, and there seems to be way too much red in the hood area of the costume for the announcement to be something related to Assassin's Creed: Unity.

What do you guys think the announcement will be? Head inside to take a look at the full image.

Much like his predecessor, Mega Man, Mighty No. 9 star Beck has the ability to steal the weapons of bosses he defeats in battle, morphing between different weapon styles. This ability is shown off in the latest Mighty No. 9 footage from developer Comcept. In addition, Call (Beck's partner and a playable character) is given a brief look as well. It's still a long time until Mighty No. 9 launches next April, but game creator Keiji Inafune is doing a good job of easing the wait and keeping us hooked with all these updates and work-in-progress video clips.

It appears that the surreal and stylized, previously PlayStation 3 exclusive exploration The Unfinished Swan is heading for the eighth generation. Gematsu reports that a pair of Korean Game Rating Board listings have revealed that the game—in which players must splatter pain around themselves to reveal a world—is going to be released on both PlayStation 4 and PS Vita.

I didn't personally know much about this game before, but even though Gematsu gave no indication of a release date, I'm now pretty intrigued and will likely end up purchasing it on PlayStation 4. Does anyone else out there feel similarly?

Get ready for mayhem, because two of Disney's most mischievous (and most popular) characters are coming to Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition.

Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition expands upon the original Disney Infinity premise by adding characters from the Marvel Universe, alongside many other Disney favorites absent in the original game, in addition to a plot uniquely its own. The most recent trailer for Disney Infinity 2.0 Edition shows off Tinker Bell, from Peter Pan and her own Tinker Bell spinoffs, and Stitch, the beloved alien monster from the Lilo and Stitch series.

Head inside to see the two characters in action, and to spot dozens of easter eggs from Gravity Falls and other Disney worlds not present in the original game.

The big European gaming trade fair Gamescom is coming up again, and Sony's just announced the date for their Gamescom 2014 presentation. Whatever Sony's got to show, we'll see it on August 12th at 7:00pm their time, 6:00pm UK Time, 1:00pm EDT, and 10:00am PDT.

What will they show? Well, you might know what I'm hoping against hope for (The Last Guardian...), but there's also unannounced titles from the likes of Guerrilla Games and Santa Monica to consider, and it seems fairly likely to me that we'll get another look at Rime.

Thanks to sources like Media Create and Famitsu, we can see what the top-selling video games are in Japan each week. Now that June is in the books, 2014 is officially over halfway over. So, what games dominated Japan in the first six months? We've got the list for you after the jump!

The US software sales numbers for the month of June are in thanks to NPD, and Watch Dogs and Mario Kart 8 have taken the top two spots for the second month. Nintendo's racer was the highest-selling game on any single platform, with nearly half a million sales in the US in June. This brings its lifetime US total to 885,000.

As Watch Dogs is available on both current and last gen consoles, it unsurprisingly was able to maintain its spot at number one. These strong US sales are a big part of why Watch Dogs has been able to ship over 8 million units so far. Hit the jump to catch the complete top ten for June.

This week's sales data for Japan is in, and there are some eye-popping numbers. Yokai Watch 2 debuted at number one, and it wasn't even close. The hotly-anticipated sequel sold over 1.3 million units in its first week alone, which is more than the life to date sales of the first game in the series. This boosted 3DS sales up from around 27,000 last week to over 61,000 for this week. Vita also saw a jump, thanks to the new Super Value Pack launched this week in Japan, and took second place with over 40,000 sales between its regular and TV models.

Media Molecule, developer of popular PlayStation exclusives like LittleBigPlanet and Tearaway, is hard at work on a new game, but so far we haven't gotten any clues as to its identity. LittleBigPlanet 3 was unveiled at E3 last month, but its development is being handled by Sumo Digital, freeing up Media Molecule to work on something new. Hopefully we won't have to wait much longer to find out what this mystery game is, as Studio Director Siobhan Reddy has tweeted a series of positive messages regarding the game's development. Hit the jump to see what he had to say.
