Two new PlayStation Portable games have managed to top weekly sales charts in Japan, as Bleach: Heat the Soul 6 sells 42,000 and Growlanser sells 23,000 during the week ended May 17. Bleach: Heat The Soul 6 and Growlanser both released in Japan on May 14 for Sony’s handheld, helping knock down last week’s top game, Pokemon Fushigi no Dungeon: Sora no Tankentai to number four. Elsewhere in this week's Media Create-supplied charts, Dragon Ball Kai: Saiyajin Raishuu for Nintendo's DS handheld dropped one spot to number three, managing to sell 20,000 during the week. Two other new titles managed to crack the weekly top 10: Konami’s Winning Eleven Playmaker for Wii and Tecmo’s Rakushou! Pachi-Slot Sengen 6 for the PlayStation 2. However, the latter title didn't even top 10,000 units sold in the week, in a relatively slow market period. Games that fell off the charts from last week’s top ten include Capcom’s Monster Hunter G, Namco’s Taiko Drum Master and Konami’s Jikkyo Powerful Major League 2009 for Wii, and Atlus’ Persona for PSP. Below are the Japanese sales charts for the week ended May 17:
