Briefly: During its first week on sale in Japan, Wii U exclusive Devil's Third didn't make the top fifty on the sales chart. Number fifty was 3DS title Yokai Watch 2, which sold 1,006 copies. Guess that means Devil's Third didn't even sell a thousand copies... or maybe it sold 1005! Correction: As pointed out by several Kotaku commenters, Devil’s Third isn't in the sales charts because it’s an Amazon Japan exclusive, so we don’t know how it sold. We apologise for the error.

Yokai Watch 2 (妖怪ウォッチ２), the sequel to the exceedingly popular Yokai Watch, has been selling like gangbusters in Japan. And for good reason. Not only is the TV anime going strong and related toys disappearing off of store shelves faster than they can stock them, but the game itself is a whole lot of fun.
Yokai Watch, Level 5's popular spirit collecting game, is still going strong, with the game remaining in Japan's video game sales top 10 list for nearly a year. There's no catching lightning in a bottle like with Pokémon, but according to developer Level 5, if you really try, you can get pretty close.
With a sequel for smash Yokai Watch coming out, Nintendo is releasing a special Nintendo 3DS, emblazoned with Yokai Watch character Jibanyan.
