Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Again Tops Japanese Charts

April's Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, Explorers of the Sky has topped the weekly Japanese software charts, which were dominated by Wii and DS titles.
Nintendo platform titles, led by Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, Explorers of the Sky, dominated Media Create's Japanese charts for the week ended May 10, although two PSP games were able to muscle their way onto the list. April's Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, Explorers of the Sky for DS captured the top spot with 44,000 sold during the week. Last week, the game resided at the number five position. Three DS titles followed Pokemon, filling out the top four spots on this week's charts, including Dragon Ball Kai: Saiyajin Raishuu, the WarioWare title Made in Ore and Mario & Luigi RPG 3. The budget-priced "PSP the Best" SKU for Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G and a remake of Persona represented the PSP on this week's list, and were the only two games that were not made for Nintendo platforms. Surging back onto the weekly top ten were Wii Fit from Nintendo and Taiko Drum Master Wii from Namco Bandai.
