Nintendo’s handheld has enjoyed its highest domestic weekly sales since launch following the recent price cut.

Enterbrain has reported, via Japanese specialist-press site Famitsu, that the 3DS enjoyed its second most successful week of sales in Japan – shifting 215,000 units – after the price of the handheld was slashed from ¥25,000 to ¥15,000.

Only during the console’s launch week did it sell more units – 371,326.

The 3DS has now sold over 1.5 million units in its home territory.
