DS Software Reclaims Top Spots In Japan Amid Slow Releases

Nintendo's newest Pokémon spin-off, Pokémon Fushigi no Dungeon: Sora no Tankentai, returns to the top of Japan's bestseller list after taking a few weeks off. That means a return to Nintendo DS dominance.

The top four bestselling games last week in Japan, via Media Create, were all Nintendo DS games. A week's worth of almost no new game releases in Japan means that evergreen titles get a chance to shine, giving titles like Wii Fit an opportunity to pop back into the top ten. In fact, there are no new releases represented on this week's chart, a result of Japan's most recent holidays.

So, yes, this is kind of a boring week. No shame in that.
