Third Week On Top For Smash Bros. In Japanese Charts

Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. Brawl on Wii has continued to dominate sales in Japan for the third week, although the St Valentine’s Day holiday has also seen success for two of Japan’s most popular dating simulator franchises on the DS and PS2.
Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. Brawl on Wii has continued to dominate sales in Japan - with the mascot based fighting game remaining at the number one spot for the third week, with 142,000 unit sales and a lifetime total of over 1.2 million. With Wii Fit also continuing to sell strongly at number two, with a lifetime total of almost 1.5 million units, the highest new entry of the week is Konami’s Tokimeki Memorial: Girl's Side 2nd Season. The female-orientated dating sim for the Nintendo DS is an enhanced port of an earlier PlayStation 2 title and sold 56,000 units on its St Valentine’s Day debut. Also new at number four is Banpresto’s strategy role-playing game Poison Pink for the PlayStation 2, with 53,000 units sold. KimiKiss (ebKore+), from Famitsu publisher Enterbrain, is the third new entry at number five and a re-release of an earlier dating simulator with additional content relating to the subsequent anime and manga tie-ins. The final new entry of the week is the latest use of the Naruto anime license on the Nintendo DS, with the new action game selling only a modest 17,000 units in its first week.
