Kirby Triple Deluxe debuted at No.1 on the Japanese software chart during the week ended January 12.
Announced in October 2013 and set for release in the west later this year, the side-scrolling platformer uses the stereoscopic 3DS screen to let Kirby move from front to back in order to avoid enemies and solve puzzles.
The game sold 214,000 copies in its first week of availability in Japan, according to Media Create data republished on NeoGAF.
3DS games took the top five places on the latest software chart, while Nintendo's portable system comfortably retained its position as the best-selling platform during the week in question, moving almost twice as many units as second-placed Vita managed.
