Top-seller: Rhythm Heaven – 118,173
Nintendo 3DS sales: 31,826 | Total sales: 1,289,741
Last week saw the release of Rhythm Heaven for the Wii in Japan, which grabbed the top spot on the software sales chart with 118,000 copies sold. Following at #2 was Sengoku Basara: Chronicle Heroes for the PSP, and at #3 was No More Heroes: Red Zone Edition.
Red Zone Edition — the second re-release of No More Heroes in Japan after Heroes’ Paradise — greatly outsold its predecessor, at least on a single console. Heroes’ Paradise, released in April 2010, sold around 15,000 units on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 (each) in its first week of release. Red Zone Edition is based off the enhanced overseas version of Heroes’ Paradise and contains new features, such as cut levels from the original Wii version.
Other notable releases during the week were Nora and the Time Studio, which is a game developed in collaboration by Gust and Atlus. Nora debuted at #8, followed by Alice: Madness Returns at #9.
