Mark Kart still atop podium in Japan

No GTA IV to bump it off.

Mario Kart Wii has whistled past the finishing line ahead of the Japanese chart-pack again this week, adding another 150,000 sales toward its 1 million goal.

That's according to Media Create data, which saw ridiculously popular PSP game Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G hold on at two and steam towards an impressive 2 million sales of its own.

Fresh entries came from the intriguing watercolour-inspired Valkyria Chronicles for PS3 at three, Taiko Drum Master DS: Seven Island Adventure at four, and Summon Night at five.

Wii Fit took six and kept up its steady momentum towards the 2 million sales figure - which it should break in the next few weeks - and We're Fossil Diggers was at seven.

Pokemon Ranger: Batonnage, DS Beautiful Letter Training and Musou Orochi: The Evil King Returns completed the top ten list.

Two Xbox 360 titles managed to break into the top 30 this week, with Rainbow Six Vegas 2 taking 11 and Frontlines: Fuel of War at 26.

Elsewhere Capcom had a disappointing first week with Phoenix Wright 4, which only managed to get to 27.

The full top ten is as follows:

  1. Mario Kart Wii (Wii)
  2. Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G (PS)
  3. Valkyria Chronicles (PS3)
  4. Taiko Drum Master DS: Seven Island Adventure (DS)
  5. Summon Night (DS)
  6. Wii Fit (Wii)
  7. We're Fossil Diggers (DS)
  8. Pokemon Ranger: Batonnage (DS)
  9. DS Beautiful Letter Training (DS)
  10. Musou Orochi: The Evil King Returns (PS2)
