Mario's Sales Still Super In Japan

Nintendo's newest Mario adventure floats comfortably atop Japan's bestsellers list, with Super Mario Galaxy 2 selling another 100,000-plus copies to Wii owners, according to latest figures.

For the second week in a row, Mario had little competition for the first place spot. This week Konami's Fairy Tail: Portable Guild for the PSP came closest. When the new debuts consist of Evangelion pachinko/pachislot games and the horror restaurant interactive fiction game Kaidan Restaurant: Ura Menu 100-Sen, it's doubtful Mario was worried about his first place chances this week.

Read on to see how a handful of new debuts and plenty of old favourites sold during the past week, according to Japanese sales tracker Media Create.

    C'mon, who doesn't love Mario?

      Strange though, the first game flopped in Japan. Which means this doesn't make any sense.

    It is sad to see good game like Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker can't even reach 1 million mark....

    Great to see Alan Wake staying strong AND even Lost Planet's 360 version is in the Top 30.
