Animal Crossing: New Leaf back on top in Japan, 3DS LL maintains 

Despite new releases from Nippon Ichi, Compile Heart and the release of Hitman: Absolution in Japan, Animal Crossing: New Leaf re-took the top spot on the Media Create charts after being bested by a brunette Dante last week. The Nintendo life sim sold an additional 82,370 units for the period, which brings its life-to-date-total to 2,366,126 units. 3DS LL was still on top of the hardware chart, followed by its older sister 3DS. The only hardware to increase in sales over the week prior was Vita, which moved 9,748 units compared to last week's 9,036. Likely due to the release of Demon Gaze and Compile Hearts' Genkai Totsuki Monster Monpiece. Charts are below.
