Nintendo's Rhythm Heaven for the Wii sat at the top of the Japanese software sales charts last week, for the second week running. According to data from tracking firm Media Create, and as posted on NeoGAF, the game stayed at number one despite a decline in sales to 81,938 units sold from 118,173 in the previous week. There were five new entries into the Japanese charts, with Bandai Namco's Queen's Gate: Spiral Chaos and Atlus' Devil Survivor 2 settling in nicely at numbers two and three respectively. Elsewhere, newcomers Hakuouki: Reimeiroku Portable and Operation Flashpoint: Red River entered at numbers 10 and 11, while Square Enix saw its Dungeon Siege III jump into the charts at number 18. Nintendo continued to dominate the lower end of the top 20, with Wii Play: Motion, Pokemon Black / White, Ocarina of Time 3D, Wii Party and GoldenEye 007 all sitting comfortably. Konami's Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball 2011 also held steady, with the PS3 and PSP versions at positions seven and nine respectively.
