Japanese Software Chart: Zelda Kicks off Crazy Season
You know the festive season is upon us when an avalanche of new games is foisted upon unsuspecting consumers. While things are winding down in the West, in Japan the time for hot onslaught has only just begun. Nintendo's new Zelda masterpiece, Skyward Sword, was released last week and has absolutely stormed the software chart, with over 194,000 units sold.

Fresh releases make up the majority of the Top 10 in fact. SEGA's Seventh Dragon sequel performing very well on PSP, selling over 122,000 copies, while Konami's Metal Gear Solid HD Collection debuts at #5. Namco Bandai has a good command of the software chart right now with Saint Seiya Senki, Weiss Schwarz Portable and a new Taiko no Tatsujin spread across the table.

Modern Warfare 3, last week's top seller, plummets down to #10, while Super Mario 3D Land is the only non-mover at #4. Check out the full Top 10 below.
