Sales of the 3DS handheld from Nintendo have been salvaged amid dwindling sales after successive price drops in various countries.Data released by Enterbrain Inc revealed that sales of the 3DS in Japan reached 214,821 units in the period between August 8-14. To put it in perspective, the original sales week in the region saw nearly 375,000 units sold back in February.

The latest price cuts came on August 11, after earlier price cuts were made to “create momentum … and accelerate penetration” of 3DS sales, according to an earlier statement from Nintendo.

Sales dipped down to around the 20,000 unit per week mark in Japan following the March earthquake disaster in Japan, according to the Nikkei.

The slowdown in sales forced Nintendo to drop its predicted profit forecast 82 percent last month, according to Bloomberg.

A letter to customers from Nintendo president Satoru Iwata last month also indicated that the 3DS price drop was the first price cut to be made by the company within the six month introduction of a product.
