The best selling 3DS game is...

...Professor Layton And The Mask Of Miracle

Professor Layton And The Mask Of Miracle has beaten Nintendogs + Cats and Super Street Fighter IV 3D to become the best selling 3DS game in Japan.

According to Japanese publisher Enterbrain, The fifth Professor Layton game shifted 117,589 copies, making it the biggest selling game of the console's launch weekend.

Professor Layton & The Mask Of Miracle was one of eight launch games that were available when the console was released in Japan on Saturday.

However, we could be waiting a while to play it in the UK as the fourth Professor Layton game (a prequel to The Mask Of Miracle) has yet to be released over here.

Here's our Professor Layton And The Mask Of Miracle preview.

    I'm so jealous of all of them! Can't believe they're so far ahead. :'(

    I reckon it could be the best seller over here if we already had SF!!!

    Didn't see that coming, but bear in mind if it was a launch title over here, most people would probably go for it too and a copy of either SSFIV or nintendogs.
