It's Media Create chart results time in Japan, and after a debut week at number one for The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes and plenty of Nintendo platform releases close behind, the latest results show new titles on rival platforms taking over the top spots.

We already highlighted that Tri Force Heroes has struggled to re-create the sales numbers of its main-series predecessor The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, and this is borne out by fairly weak second week sales that see the multiplayer-focused title shift just 19,499 extra units. The software top 20 is quiet for Nintendo, overall, with evergreen games still occupying decent places; lifetime sales are in brackets.

The hardware results don't bring much change from last week, with the PS Vita gaining the most but the New Nintendo 3DS LL (XL) also showing improvement in holding second place.
