Pokémon Returns To Power On Japanese Software Charts

Pokémon Platinum is back. It beat out one of Japan's other favourite series, yet another Dynasty Warriors for the PlayStation 2, to return to the number one spot after a week off. There's little else in the way of exciting new debuts, but we unfortunately see Disaster: Day of Crisis slip further down the charts. Poor Monolith Soft... they worked so hard!

Nintendo's New Super Mario Bros. finds its way back onto the top 30, continuing a bazillion week streak of eyebrow raising sales.
