Pokemon Typing Game Tops Japanese Sales Chart
April 28, 2011 | By Mike Rose

Pokemon Co. took the top spot in the Japanese software sales chart this week, with the debut of Battle & Get! Pokemon Typing DS on Nintendo DS.

According to numbers released by tracking firm Media Create (as translated on the NeoGAF forums), last week's robot battler Dai-2-Ji Super Robot Wars Z: Hakai-hen dropped down from first to third place with 44,973 sales, while the Pokemon Typing game sold 59,363 units.

PSP and PlayStation 3 title Pro Baseball Spirits 2011 continued to sell well, dropping only a couple of places to fourth and fifth for the respective platforms.

Square Enix's Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 - Professional jumped up a place, selling 45,397 units to reach second place, but down 47 percent in sales from last week.

Meanwhile, the chart also saw several other new entries, including SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs 4, which only managed to sell 12,613 units, and Otomedius X from Konami, which jumped in at number 10 with 10,502 sales.

Other new additions also include Hudson's Original Story from Fairy Tail: Gekitotsu! Kardia Daiseidou, Prototype's Clannad and Bandai Namco's Detective Conan: Aoki Houseki no Rinbukyoku.
