Another strong week of sales in Japan has seen Wii Fit
claim the number one spot in its second week, with Nintendo’s exercise themed hardware bundle proving an expected hit in its homeland.
Three games sold over 100,000 units this week, with Wii Fit
on 150,000, Mario Party DS
rising up four places to number two with 107,000 units sold and Namco’s Tales of Innocence
on Nintendo DS selling 104,000 units.
The fourth highest new entry of the week was the latest game in the Hot Shots Golf
series on PSP, which continues to one of the format’s biggest franchises with around 87,000 units sold in its first week.
Also new at number seven is Mistwalker’s new role-playing game Lost Odyssey
on the Xbox 360. The more adult themed adventure sold more than 25,000 less units than the opening week of Mistwalker’s Blue Dragon
– which was released at almost exactly the same time last year
. However, the 55,000 unit total was still well above average for an Xbox 360 release in Japan.
The final new entry in the top ten was Konami’s baseball simulator Power Pro Kun Pocket 10
on Nintendo DS, with around 54,000 units sold. There were only two PlayStation 3 games in the top thirty with World Soccer Winning Eleven 2008
(aka Pro Evolution Soccer 2008
) at number twenty-one and new entry Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune
at number twenty-four.
