When our “This Week In Imports” column for the week of April 5th – 11th went up, I wondered why it was subtitled “Atelier Judie Or Bust.” It wasn’t like Spencer to be extremist. Once read the post, I realized it was because Atelier Judie was virtually the only notable “new” release in Japan for the week.

 

Unfortunately, it debuted outside of the top-ten at the #12 position on the weekly Media Create software sales ranking, with 9,000 units sold. The top-ten itself is mostly a re-shuffling of last week’s sales report.

On a slightly bright note, the lack of new releases gave games like Yakuza 4 and Fist of the North Star: Musou another week to shine in the top-ten rankings. It’s also interesting that the PSP version of Pro Baseball Spirits 2010 rose higher up on the chart, while the PS3 version went down.
