Namco Bandai’s My Little Sister Can’t Possibly Be This Cute Portable Can’t Possibly Continue has topped the Japanese hardware charts for the week ended May 20. And no, we aren’t kidding you – it’s a real game.

The quirky PSP outing shifted 53,175 units, knocking Mario Party 9 off the top spot and beating out fellow handheld outing Persona 2: Eternal Punishment.

On the hardware front meanwhile, 3DS once again takes the crown as the best-selling games machine of the week, with PS3 coming in second, PSP third and PS Vita fourth. Sadly, Sony’s new handheld still can’t seem to catch a break in its native country, with salesup by only 7 units on the previous week.
