Simple 2000: The Japanese Software Chart

fft_a2.jpgShocker! A Nintendo DS Final Fantasy game tops the weekly Japanese sales charts! Alongside Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Fuuketsu no Grimoire's impressive weekly sales, the rest of the top ten features uniquely Japanese releases, mostly new. Winning Eleven, Imabikisou, Sega's horrific sound novel game, DS Bungaku Zenshuu, the Nintendo literature collection, and all sorts of other things I don't recognise round out the top ten. Even Sega's wacky Ghost Squad debuted strong.

While Sega had a good week, it seems Japanese gamers have had their fill of Seaman, as the PlayStation 2 release dropped from number 1 to number 21 in its second week. Oh well! Media Create's sales figures for October 22 to the 28 are below.
