Simple 2000: The Japanese Software Chart

Last week's Japanese software chart champ Yakuza 3 Kenzan! was knocked down by Nintendo's latest training game, showing that the stylus is mightier than the sword. DS Bimoji Training brings calligraphy skill assessment to the Nintendo DS, giving Nintendo the number one spot for the week of March 10 to 16. Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Wii Fit continue to float near the top, as few newcomers with capable star power debut on the list.

Oh, and for the record, 12Riven: The Psi-Climinal of Integral, after the jump, is not a typo on my part.

    I wish you guys would get over italicising words so obsessively (eg. "it's NOT a typo on my part") It's anal, and unnecessary. Your readers are smart enough to figure out which words are accented.

    Your readers ARE smart enough, I say!
