3DS games dominate Japanese chart

Titles for Nintendo's handheld occupy nine of the top ten places

3DS dominated Japanese software and hardware sales during the week ended May 11.

Titles for Nintendo's handheld occupied nine of the top ten software chart places and 14 of the top 20, according to data from retail monitor Media Create, which was republished on NeoGAF.

Weekly 3DS hardware sales actually declined, although the system managed to extend its lead over Vita as Sony's system suffered a bigger drop-off.
