We’re a few weeks into the new year now, and the sales figures in Japan show that the post-holiday slump is very real this year. Unlike last week, multiple new games hit the top twenty (with Sengoku Basara 4 sitting at number one), but hardware sales were almost universally lower this week. 3DS continues to hold the top hardware spot, but sharp decline from Decembers strong numbers has cut its lead over Vita significantly. You can catch all the sales data after the jump.
Japan’s first full sales week of the new year is in the books, and you can tell the holidays are over as the astronomical figures posted by 3DS, Wii U, and Vita over the past few weeks have leveled out. 3DS took all top five spots this week, including Kirby Triple Deluxe debuting at number one. Final Fantasy X/X2 HD Remake had another solid week as well, cracking the top twenty on both PlayStation 3 and Vita. Hit the jump for the full breakdown.

Japan’s sales data is in for the week ending just before Christmas on December 22, and Nintendo’s going to be having some happy holidays.

Hit the jump for the breakdown.
This week’s Japanese numbers are in, and sales are up almost everywhere. December may not be as important of a sales month in the East as it is in the West, but it looks like there’s still some strong holiday influence to be felt in the video game market. This is no more true than Nintendo, as 3DS had another dominating week and Wii U increased sales yet again. Vita had a solid week as well despite having no new games in the top twenty. Hit the jump for the breakdown!
