Mario Galaxy romps Japan

Ace Combat does well, too.

Super Mario Galaxy has unsurprisingly trampled all over competition this week in Japan, selling over three times more than its closest competition.

More surprising was that Ace Combat 6 was the close competition, an exclusive title for the not-selling-so-well-over-there Xbox 360.

That was all according to Media Create figures, which saw Super Robot Wars Scramble Commander The 2nd on PS2 and Wii Sports as the only non-Nintendo DS titles in the rest of the top 10.

The full list looks like this. New entries are marked with an asterisk and total sales are also displayed.

  1. Super Mario Galaxy (Wii) - 251,000*
  2. Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation (Xbox 360) - 77,000*
  3. Final Fantasy Tactics A2 (DS) - 51,000 / 193,000
  4. Super Robot Wars Scramble Commander The 2nd (PS2) - 21,000*
  5. DS Bungaku Zenshuu (DS) - 18,000 / 72,000
  6. DS Nishimura Kyotaro Suspense Shin Tantei Series: Kyoto Atami Zekkai no Kotou - Satsui no Wana (DS) - 18,000 / 115,000
  7. Wii Sports (Wii) - 16,000 / 2,182,000
