New Super Mario Bros. 2 reclaimed the top sales spot leading into summer break, pushing the two-week-old Dragon Quest X into second place. The 3DS Mario game sold 146,684 units, bringing its life total to 790,732 units.

Dragon Quest X sold 70,352 units in its second week, bringing its total to 490,663 units. Wii hardware saw its DQ-influenced surge end, falling from last week's 40,000 plus units to 15,916 units this week -- still good enough to top PS3 and even PSP.

There were only a handful of new releases over the week. Namco Bandai's PSP adaptation of Kuroko's Basketball placed 3rd with 36,844 units. Ubisoft's Sniper Elite V2 debuted in 12th with 11,411 units. Idea Factory's PSP love adventure game L.G.S debuted in 25th with 5,698 units.
