The holidays are over, which means that sales have gone down.

Japanese sales data from January 9 through January 15 show a drop in sales due to the end of the holiday shopping season.

Despite this drop the 3DS and its games remain strong performers for the week. The first game to appear on the Japanese sales chart is Mario Kart 7 with 52,266 copies sold for a lifetime total of 1,369,623 copies sold. Following it is Capcom's Monster Hunter 3G with 44,644 copies for a total of 1,128,498 copies sold since its release. Nintendo Super Mario 3D Land follows it up with 40,154 copies sold, with Level-5's Inazuma Eleven Go: Shine/Dark following it behind at 20,777.

Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir made its debut this week/ The horror game managed to sell on its first week 16,351 copies. (Earlier this week Nintendo of America announced that the game would be coming to North America in April.) The final 3DS game on the top ten is Namco Bandai's Ace Combat: Assault Horizon Legacy, with it moving 12,819 units during its debut week. Closing the top ten is a Wii title, Just Dance Wii, with 12,370 copies sold.
