In a plentiful week for new releases, the Nintendo-published The Last Story debuted on top of the Japanese retail game charts, reports tracking firm Media Create. Created by Nintendo and Blue Dragon developer Mistwalker, The Last Story is an action role-playing game from Hironobu Sakaguchi, perhaps best known as the creator of the Final Fantasy series. For the week ended January 30, Sega's Valkyria Chronicles 3 and Namco Bandai's visual novel My Little Sister Can't Be This Cute Portable rounded out the top three. Spike's PSP brawler Kenka Bancho 5: Laws of Manhood debuted at number four, followed by ASCII Media Work's fighting game Magical Index Term at number five. For the first time since its launch, Capcom's popular Monster Hunter Freedom 3 fell from the top three amidst the slew of new releases, and landed at number seven. Last week's top-selling title, Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep - Final Mix slipped down the charts to number nine. Other new titles this week include the Spike-published Dragon Age: Origins and D3 Publisher's Dream Club Zero. Below is Media Create's top 20 sales chart for the week ended January 30, 2011.
