Japanese Software Charts: Tales of Remake Domination
After sitting pretty at the top of the charts last week with over 200,000 units sold, Sengoku Basara 3 gets knocked off its perch in this week's Japanese Software Chart (2nd August - 8th August 2010, courtesy Media Create). The samurai hack-and-slasher has been usurped by PSP adventure game Tales of Phantasia: Narikiri Dungeon X.

1 Tales of Phantasia: Narikiri Dungeon X Namco Bandai (PSP) 108,356 / NEW
2 Wii Party Nintendo (Wii) 82,698
3 Sengoku Basara 3 Capcom (PS3) 57,021
4 Hatsune Miku: Project Diva 2nd Sega (PSP) 35,865
5 Inazuma Eleven 3: World Challenge!! Spark/Bomber Level-5 (DS) 24,224
6 Storm Lover D3 Publisher (PSP) 20,087 / NEW
7 Super Mario Galaxy 2 Nintendo (Wii) 16,695
8 Fire Emblem: Shin Monshou no Nazo Hikari to Kage no Eiyuu Nintendo (DS) 15,845
9 Sengoku Basara 3 Capcom (Wii) 15,387
10 Battle Spirits: Digital Starter Namco Bandai (DS) 15,338 / NEW

(Note: Chart position is first, then game name, publisher, format and sales for this week)

It makes sense, given Japan's love for anything with the prefix Tales of - but in fact the game's not entirely new. It's a remake of the Game Boy Color RPG of the same name, but it also includes a remake of the first Tales of Phantasia game too. It was enough to shift over 100,000 copies over the last week.

The rest of the chart is a little bit boring, to be brutally honest with you the massive sales comedown of both Sengoku Basara 3 and Hatsune Miku: Project Diva 2nd has allowed favourites Wii Party, Inazuma Eleven 3 and Super Mario Galaxy 2 to shift up the Top 10. The only other new entries to chart is D3's Storm Lover and Namco Bandai's Battle Spirits on the DS, which debut at #6 and #10 respectively.
