Japanese Charts: Mario Power Tennis Remains In New Play Control

The new Wii version of GameCube title Mario Power Tennis has remained at number in the Japanese sales charts for a second week. The game held off new role-playing game Fragile on Wii, as well as Valve’s Left 4 Dead on the Xbox 360.
The new Wii version of GameCube title Mario Power Tennis has remained at number in the Japanese sales charts for a second week. With overall sales still low, and constricting slightly even on the previous week, the New Play Control! title easily held off the week’s few new entries with a total of 32,000 unit sales. The game’s closest challenger was Namco Bandai’s Wii exclusive role-player Fragile at number two. Developed in conjunction with Baten Kaitos and Eternal Sonata creators tri-Crescendo, the game sold a modest 26,000 units. Appearing in the top 10 for the first time since its debut in December, Namco Bandai has finally been able to properly replenish stock of Taiko Drum Master Wii, with the game moving up nine places to number three with around 26,000 units sold. The final new entry in the top 10 is Koei’s Zill O'll Infinite Plus for the PSP, a remake of the cult PSone and PlayStation 2 role-playing game. The only other two new entries in the top 30 this week are Valve’s Left 4 Dead on Xbox 360 at number 12 and Kadokawa Shoten’s anime-licensed dance game Suzumiya Haruhi no Gekidou for the Wii at number 13.
