Japan chart: My Little Sister Can't Possibly Be This Cute takes top spot

So, umm, yeah...

Something called My Little Sister Can't Possibly Be This Cute Portable Can't Possibly Continue is currently the best selling game in Japan.

It's a PSP title, it's published by Namco Bandai and it's the game that 53,175 Japanese people most wanted to play last week. We'd head to YouTube to find out more but we really don't want to wind up on a government watchlist.

In fairness, it was another slow sales week in Japan. The only other new entry worthy of note was a PSP remake of Persona 2, which debuted in third place.

Last week's number one, Mario Party 9, dropped to second.

Here's the full top 20, as posted by Andriasang:
