3DS retakes hardware top spot in Japan

Six new titles in top ten as Konami sells nearly 200,000 baseball games

The 3DS has retaken the number one hardware sales spot in Japan by shifting 46,637 units - more than double last week's total, due in part to the release of Star Fox 64 3D.

Six new releases made the country's software top ten, including two skus for Konami's baseball title Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball 2011, which sold almost 200,000 copies combined.

All numbers are courtesy of Media Create.
