Sales have recovered only slightly in the Japanese sales chart this week, as the market continues to undergo a period of low demand.
The top-selling game is Capcom’s Sengoku Basara: Battle Heroes
on PSP, with a first week total of 86,000 units. The game is a portable spin-off from what was known in the West as Devil Kings
, although only the first game in the series has ever been released outside Japan.
New at number two is what will be known in the West as Muramasa: The Demon Blade
for the Wii. The more niche title from Odin Sphere
developer Vanillaware sold 29,000 units on its debut - almost all of its initial allocation.
In the rest of the chart though the unit sales figures rapidly decline, with the tenth placed Wii Fit
selling only a four digit amount. The only other new entry is AQ Interactive’s arcade conversion of 2D fighter Arcana Heart 2
on PlayStation 2, with 11,000 units sold.
In the rest of the top 30 the highest new entry is new Nintendo DS edutainment software Zaidanhoujin Nippon Kanji Nouryoku Kentei Kyoukai Kounin: Kanken DS 3 Deluxe
from publisher Rocket at number 16.
The only other new entry is CyberFront’s anime tie-in Shinseiki Evangelion: Koutetsu no Girlfriend Tokubetsu-Hen Portable
on the PSP, at number 27.
