An unusual near-simultaneous worldwide release for Mario Kart Wii has seen Nintendo’s racing title take pole in both the UK and Japanese charts this week, with the game’s Japanese debut totaling sales of 594,000 units. With no other major new releases this week, though the runaway success of Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G on PSP has reached new heights, with the game outselling Super Smash Bros. Brawl on Wii after just three weeks on sale, at 1,590,000 units to 1,563,000. The rest of the top ten remains largely static, although Wii Fit has moved up three places to number four with a lifetime-to-date sales total in excess of 1,8500,000 units. Japanese comedy duo Yoiko have also seen their Nintendo DS title move up two places to number six, although overall sales are low for most titles in the bottom half of the top ten. The only new entries in the rest of the top thirty are rhythm action game Oshiri Kajiri Mushi no Rhythm Lesson DS from Sega at number eighteen and the Xbox 360 version of Turok at number twenty-nine.
