The Japanese videogames market made 8 per cent less money in 2011 than in 2010, new figures have revealed.
Game sales stuttered compared to the previous year, with almost 14 per cent less revenue despite the launch of the Nintendo 3DS and, in the year's final weeks, PlayStation Vita.
Hardware revenue rose - perhaps unsurprising considering the year's dual platform launches - but not by much.
Monster Hunter Tri G has shipped one million copies in Japan, Capcom has announced.
The PlayStation 3 version of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim debuted at number four on this week's Japanese sales chart, with the Xbox 360 SKU not too far behind at nine.
Monster Hunter Tri G on 3DS launched to thunderous success in Japan, selling 471,055 copies in just two days.
Its launch caused 3DS hardware sales to skyrocket, beating even its launch-week total, Japanese chart company Enterbrain reports (via Andriasang). 378,114 3DS units were sold - the highest seven-day sum ever for the machine in Japan.
Those numbers pushed Nintendo's handheld past the 3 million mark in the country.
Nintendo's much-derided 3DS Circle Pad Pro accessory has a beefy battery life of 480 hours, according to the device's manual (posted online by Andriasang).

The new variant launches on 3rd November - a couple of weeks after a Misty Pink version arrives on Japanese shelves.
Then, on 10th December, Japan gets yet another new version of the console, with Nintendo releasing a limited edition Monster Hunter Tri G-branded handheld bundled with the game for ¥20,800 (£176).

The Japanese Monster Hunter 3G website has revealed the first details on the game.
The headline new feature is a brand new control method, built for the Nintendo 3DS. You can play the game with just the slide pad and buttons, or you can use the touchscreen, Andriasang reports.
The lower screen displays a Target Camera panel, which can be toggled on or off. When on, a press of the L button forces the camera to turn to the monster you're fighting. When off, L moves the camera behind your character's back. When on, tap L twice to make the camera turn to your back. You can tap icons on the 3DS touchscreen to use items.

UPDATE: The cradle adds R1, R2 and L2 shoulder buttons (the normal Nintendo 3DS L1 button is not replaced).
