Japanese Charts:  Macross  On PSP Leads Divided Top 10

Japanese Charts: Macross On PSP Leads Divided Top 10 Exclusive

October 16, 2008 | By David Jenkins

New anime tie-in Macross Ace Frontier from Namco Bandai is the number one selling game in Japan this week, with 104,000 unit sales. The new PSP title is based on the popular Macross franchise, elements of which have previously been used in the U.S. series Robotech.

The game is one of only two new entries in the top 30 this week, the only other one being PlayStation 2 strategy game Kamiyo Gakuen Makorouku Kurunugia from Idea Factory at number 30.

Pokemon Platinum has had another strong week at number two, with 86,000 unit sales, while Nintendos Rhythm Heaven on Nintendo DS and Koeis Dynasty Wars 6 Special on PS2 also continue to sell well.

However, the bottom half of the top 10 has seen some of the slower sales figures for the year -- the eighth, ninth and 10th placed titles all sold just 8,000 units this week.
