Namco Bandai's Tales of Phantasia: Narikiri Dungeon X topped the Japanese sales charts this week, followed by Nintendo's Wii Party, pushing last week's top title, Sengoku Basara 3, into the number three spot.
Namco Bandai’s latest entry in the Tales series, Tales of Phantasia: Narikri Dungeon X for PSP debuted at number one on the Japanese sales charts for the week ended August 8, tracking firm Media Create announced Thursday. The PSP game is a remake of the Game Boy Color RPG Tales of Phantasia: Narikiri Dungeon, the sequel to the original Tales of Phantasia. The game features the action battle system traditionally used in other entries of the series, as well as random dungeons, a costume system, and the ability to change character classes at will. Namco Bandai has not yet announced a North American release for the title. Tales of Phantasia: Narikri Dungeon X sold 108,356 units in its first week, with Wii Party taking the number two spot, pushing last week’s top game, Capcom’s Sengoku Basara 3 for PlayStation 3, into the third spot. Three other new titles, StormLover for PSP, Battle Spirits: Digital Starter for DS, and Heart Catch PreCure! Oshare Collection for DS broke the top 10 this week, hitting the fifth, ninth, and tenth spots, respectively.
