Six new releases proliferated tracking firm Media Create's top 10 games in Japan for the week ended June 28, but it was Nintendo's Wii Sports Resort
that was easily the runaway hit.
The title, which includes various sports such as fencing, wakeboarding, and skydiving, sold 360,000 units during the week, capturing the top spot. The closest-selling game was last week's number one, Nintendo's Tomodachi Connection
for DS, which sold 72,000 units this week.
Wii Sports Resort
utilizes the recently released Wii MotionPlus peripheral, a small attachment for the Wii Remote that improves the accuracy of motion control. Famitsu said this week that at 353,000 sold in its first four days at retail, it was the third-fastest selling
Wii game in Japan, behind Super Smash Bros. Brawl
and Mario Kart Wii
New games showing up in the top ten this week aside from Wii Sports Resort
were Atelier Rorona: Alchemist of Arland
for PSP, Ken to Mahou to Gakuen Mono 2
for PSP, the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of BlazBlue
from Arc System Works, and Agarest Senki Zero
Games dropping out of the top 10 from last week were Wii Fit
, Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth
, Pokemon Platinum
, Fate/Unlimited Codes Portable
, and Koei's Shin Sangokumusou 5: Empires
