Animal Crossing propels 3DS skywards in Japan; Outsells Vita by 47:1

Sales of the PlayStation Vita have fallen to an all-time low in Japan, but that’s not Sony’s biggest concern this week.

The release of new title Animal Crossing: New Leaf – a very popular IP in Japan – saw 3DS hardware sales rocket, with 187,077 units being shifted last week.

Vita, by contrast, sold just 4,021 units. That means 3DS outsold Vita by a ratio of 47-to-1. It is also without a single title in the software Top 30 while 3DS accounts for 14 entries.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf, incidentally, shifted 721,786 copies in its debut week.

Animal Crossing: New Leaf will be released in the UK in 2013.
