Nathan Drake Charts Among Japan's Bestselling Games

Nathan Drake makes double the appearance on this week's list of the top 30 games in Japan, his two PlayStation 3 adventures selling well, but not nearly well enough to dethrone the Pokemons.

Just like last week, Pokemon Heart Gold and Soul Silver secured the number one spot on Media Create's software chart, moving another 165,000 units between 'em. And like last week, Wii Fit Plus scores second place, showing incredibly fit legs to move past a half million units sold.

The week's new debuts, including the Japanese release of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and the Wii port of Okami, managed to crack the top 10 in some instances. In others, like the release of Undead Knights and the latest Beatmania, new games had to settle for just a top thirty showing.

    How come Okami for wii took so long to be released?

    Good to see the game get some attention over there.

    Wow theres actually quite a lot of PS3 games in the list. It's not often that its ONLY Wii, DS and some PSP. Even the PSP is getting some love in the software dept.

    Whats this Steins Gate on 360? Is this an exclusive or something...
