Nintendo's racer shifted a massive 423,619 copies in its first four days on sale, although the second highest new entry, Gundam Extreme VS for PS3, wasn't all that far behind with 349,756 sales.

The PS3 version of Assassin's Creed Revelation made its chart bow in fourth place with 39,947 sales, Andriasang reports.

It was a good week for 3DS hardware sales too, which jumped to over 205,000 units, five times the total of its nearest competitor, PS3.
