DmC Devil May Cry debuted at number one on the Media Create charts last week, knocking Animal Crossing : New Leaf down a notch.

The Capcom actioner moved 110,429, besting Animal Crossing by 12,981 units.

3DS LL and 3DS were both down over last week, however, both handheld were still the best and second-best selling systems for the week, respectively. All but one hardware system showed a sales decline over the week prior, and that system was Wii, which sold an extra 326 units over last week.
