The Japanese charts still seem to be suffering a late spring stupor with unit sales still only 51% of the weekly average. Even though the latest Kirby title has gone straight into number it sold only 189,000 units – 24,000 less than the last entry in the series. Likewise other new entries such as anime license Crayon Shin-chan and Crimson Sea 2 sold only 19,000 and 18,000 units, respectively. As a result hardware sales are largely identical to last week with the PlayStation 2 losing only a little of its lead with 48.59% of the market, followed by the Game Boy Advance at 44.25%, GameCube at 6.14%, Xbox at 0.52% and PS one at 0.32%.
