Handheld sales double as Nintendo release shifts 400,000 in debut week

Nintendo's Tomodachi Collection: New Life sold more than 400,000 units in its first week on sale in Japan.

According to data released by Media Create, the 3DS release was a comfortable victor in last week's chart, with the second place game, Namco Bandai's Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, selling only 87,000 copies.

Other notable new entries in the software chart were Sega's Seven Dragon 2020 II, which sold 73,000 units, and Idea Factory's Amnesia Crowd, which sold 34,000.

Looks like Vita has finally stabilized. 15k isn't great, but if this is the new floor that should keep Sony happy until even more games launch for the device.

Interesting to see XL sales sky-rocket, but normal sales stay the same.

@ Michael I'm pretty sure there was a 3DS XL Special Edition bundle.
