Badass PSP Game Rumbles To The Top Of Japan's Bestsellers List

Tough guy simulator Kenka Bancho 4: Ichinen Sensou is Japan's bestselling video game, the latest entry in the series that has made its way stateside under the name Kenka Bancho: Badass Rumble. It dethrones Capcom's Biohazard 5 re-release this week.

While Biohazard 5 Alternative Edition (aka Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition) couldn't hold onto first place again this week, it's only bumped down to third, sitting behind Kenka Banco 4 for PSP and Super Robot Wars OG: Saga Endless Frontier Exceed for the Nintendo DS. That's better than Heavy Rain and Dante's Inferno, two PlayStation 3 games that quickly slipped off the chart.

There are plenty of new releases in this week's Media Create software chart, including the Japanese release of Borderlands, BlazBlue Portable and the re-release of Demon's Souls. See all—make that 30—of Japan's top sellers for the week of February 22 to 28 in the list below.

    They've improved the Kenka Bancho game significantly over the previous game.

    Did i just see 2 Xbox 360 games in the Top 30 in ONE week. Umm wow?

    At least the Japanese used their heads and got Borderlands on 360 rather than PS3. Unless they only released a 360 version then it would make more sense cause the Japs don't really use their heads much when it comes to buying video games.
