Here at SPOnG, we love the Japanese. We try to be like them, and so should you. As we're sure you know, in Japan everybody starts the day with an impressive, acrobatic kendo workout, before powersliding down a mountain in a turbo-charged car to meet sexy twins in sailor outfits and sing karaoke over some sushi.
The other thing they love to do over there at the moment is buy Nintendo DS games by the bucket-load. More DS Lites were sold in Japan last week than all the other consoles put together. Even more impressively, the all formats software chart has been totally dominated by DS titles, with every single game
in the top ten for Nintendo's facelifted double screen of delight.
Here's a full run-down, with new title Final Fantasy III slam dunking in at number one and shifting a staggering 500,000 copies:
Final Fantasy 3
New Super Mario Brothers
Brain Age 2
Mario Basketball 3 on 3
Animal Crossing WW
Impressive, eh? Brain Age is what they call Brain Training over there, by the way.
