Having been narrowly outpaced by Sony's handheld the previous week, thanks in no small part to the recent Vita price cut, Nintendo's portable managed to re-establish a comfortable lead of more than 30,000 sales.

On the software front, new releases took the top three spots, with Sword Art Online: Infinity Moment for PSP coming in ahead of Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix for PS3 and Super Robot Wars UX for 3DS.

Elsewhere, God of War: Ascension debuted at No.8, while fellow PS3 release Darkstalkers Resurrection entered at No.12, according to Media Create data published on NeoGAF.
