As previously reported, Nintendo 3DS sales received a nice boost last week, following the 40% price cut on the system in Japan. The 3DS, which went from 25,000 yen to 15,000 yen, sold a little over 196,000 units during the week. Accompanying it was Pokémon Rumble Blast, debuting at over 86,000 units.

 

Rumble Blast wasn’t the only 3DS game that sold last week. New 3DS owners also picked up The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Nintendogs + cats, One Piece: Unlimited Cruise SP and Star Fox 64 3D, bringing each of those games back onto the top-20 software sales chart for the week.

 

The best-selling game of the week was Monster Hunter Diary G for the PSP, an update to the original Monster Hunter Diary. That game sold over 98,000 units.
