Nintendo’s Wii exclusive Super Mario Galaxy
has got off to a relatively slow start in Japan, with first week results below that of Mario Party 8 in August
Although impressive by most other standards, the game’s debut of 251,000 units comes behind Mario Party 8
’s total of 265,000 units - despite much greater critical acclaim.
There will likely be no disappointment in the performance of Namco Bandai’s Xbox 360 exclusive Ace Combat 6
, though, which debuts at number two with 77,000 units sold.
The game is one of three Xbox 360 titles in the top thirty, with budget priced re-releases The Idol Master
at number twenty-one and Chikyuu Boueigun 3
(aka Earth Defense Force 2017
) at number twenty-nine.
The only other new entry in the top ten is a sequel to Banpresto’s real-time strategy spin-off from the Super Robot Wars
series at number four, with Scramble Commander the 2nd
selling 21,000 units on PlayStation 2.
Outside the top three overall game sales still remain low, with one of the two Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2
SKUs at number ten - registering just 14,000 units sold during the week.
