Whatever Soul Sacrifice is, it can’t come soon enough. With no new releases to speak of, the Vita continued its decline in Japan this week, selling a paltry 8,250 units.

To its credit, it wasn’t the only system to decline. Only the DSi LL managed to post an improved figure, beating its previous tally by a measly seven units. The 3DS, PS3 and PSP all suffered significant drops.

In the software charts, Namco Bandai’s 2nd Super Robot Wars Z Saisei Volume enjoyed a second week at the top, while fresh PSP titles from Idea Factory were the only new releases to chart.
