New Super Mario Bros 2 racks up 1m sales in Japan
New Super Mario Bros. 2 leaped over the 1 million mark in Japan, topping the country's sales charts for the third consecutive week. Nintendo's platformer sold 71,092 copies this week, which despite being less than half of last week's sales was enough to see it through to seven figures.

That fall in New Super Mario Bros. 2 sales correlates with a drop in weekly 3DS sales from 107,140 to 64,921. Nonetheless, the 3DS sits comfortably ahead of its nearest rival, the PS3, at 12,243 sales this week.
