Last week’s highest-selling game in Japan was a new release—The 2nd Super Robot Taisen Z: Regeneration Chapter for PSP, at over 265,000 copies sold. Trailing behind it at #2 was Kingdom Hearts 3D, dropping off significantly in its second week at just 42,000 copies sold. Things aren’t looking good for the game’s staying power.

 

Kinect Star Wars charted in the top-20 as well, with 6,000 copies sold. The only other new release last week was Mahjong Dream Club by D3 Publisher. It was such a slow week that Mario Kart Wii jumped from #30 to #18.
