Although sales this year during the annual Golden Week series of national holidays did not produce as large a sales bump as is normally expected, the following week of sales has shown the traditional fall across the board.
Capcom’s Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G
on PSP rose back up to number one, but with only 53,000 unit sales. Nevertheless, it passed the 2 million mark this week, with overall sales now exceeding Super Smash Bros. Brawl
and almost equal with Wii Fit
The highest new entry of the week is strategy role-playing game Luminous Arc 2: Will
from Marvelous Entertainment, with the Nintendo DS sequel selling 41,000 units on its debut. The second PSP title in the top is Sony’s fifth entry in anime licensed beat’ em-up series Bleach: Heat the Soul
, with 39,000 units sold.
Also new at number six on Wii is what is known in the West as Battalion Wars 2
, but which in Japan is formally part of the Famicom Wars
series. Its release delayed considerably from its Western debut it sold 35,000 copies in its first week.
Outside the top ten, the highest new entry at number twelve is visual novel The Color Blue
from Success on PlayStation 2. The only other new entry is the Xbox 360 version of Starbreeze’s The Darkness
, published in Japan by Spike, which is new at number twenty-three.
