Kirby Chews Up, Spits Out Niko Bellic In Japan

The Japanese release of Kirby Superstar Ultra, which will hit Oz on November 27, lands with a resounding pink boom, selling over a quarter million copies. It kicks last week's champ Grand Theft Auto IV from the top of the charts. Hoshi no Kirby: Ultra Super Deluxe joins five other Nintendo DS games in the top ten, the only new debut to chart above the jump.

Recently launched PlayStation 3 titles GTA IV, Gran Turismo 5 Prologue Spec III and LittleBigPlanet do good enough business to stay in the top ten, a feat we don't expect to see repeated next week. New releases like Samurai Dou 3, Family Ski: World Ski & Snowboard and Fushigi no Dungeon: Fuurai no Shiren DS 2 - Sabaku no Majou will probably take up valuable chart real estate.

The rest of Japan's best sellers for the week of Nov. 3 to 9 are after the break.
