Acquire's newcomer Akiba's Trip on PSP dominated the Japanese software sales charts last week, shifting more than double the number of units Koei Tecmo's new 3DS fighter Dead or Alive: Dimensions could manage. For the week ended May 22, 2011, Neogaf has posted the charts which also saw two more new releases in the top ten. Atlus' Gungnir: Mayari no Gunshin to Eiyuu Sensou settled for fourth place, while EA's Portal 2 jumped in at number six. Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 - Professional's reign over the charts continues, as the title fell only two places to third. SCE's Patapon 3 continued to sell well, staying firmly at position five. Nintendo's Steel Diver took a hit, dropping to tenth place from third last week, with a 74 percent decrease in sales. Namco Bandai's PS3 title Suzumiya Haruhi no Tsuisou fell from the highest, dropping to seventeenth place from second last week. Elsewhere, Pro Baseball Spirits 2011 continued to sell, with the PSP and PS3 versions at numbers seven and 11 respectively.
