The Wii U continues to ail in the Japanese market, as sales of Nintendo’s latest console have fallen below those of the PlayStation Vita.

Weekly sales figures provided by Media Create (via NeoGAF) show that the Wii U managed just to sell just 9633 units throughout last week, with Vita achieving 11,456 unit sales.

Elsewhere, Nintendo 3DS continued its popularity surge by hitting 74,729 sales, with the PlayStation 3 also doubling the numbers reached by the Wii U.
