Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition and Xenoblade Chronicle X did well during launch week in Japan, but the big news on the Media Create charts is a massive uptick in Wii U unit sales which more than doubled over the prior week with a 217.6% sales increase.

Wii U debuts Dragon Quest X: Legend of the Ancient Dragon Online and Xenoblade Chronicles X helped sales significantly week-over-week. During the April 27-May 3 period, Wii U moved 22,898 units compared to 7,210 units the prior week, subsequently topping the hardware chart.

Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition was the top seller on the software chart for the week with 179,926 units sold, and despite giving 3DS systems a slight boost, there wasn’t much movement on the hardware chart.

Other hardware systems saw a slight increase for the week save for PlayStation 3 and PS4.
