Charts: Japan hearts Kingdom Hearts
Sales down, newcomers scarce.
The Japanese software chart is ruled by Kingdom Hearts 358/2 for a second week, with Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth holding strong at two.
But numbers, when compared with last week's, are well down across the board.
Two new entries shake up the top 10. The first of these is Arc Rise Fantasia for Wii, which debuts at four. Made by Marvelous and imageepooch, Arc Rise Fantasia is a turn-based RPG that scored 32/40 in Japanese magazine Famitsu, for what it's worth. There's a video of Arc Rise Fantasia to watch on Eurogamer TV.
Evangelion: Jo is the other new entry this week, which arrives at six on PSP and 16 on PS2. This is an adaptation of a Japanese animated film that's based on a Japanese animated series. Confusing, isn't it. Namco Bandai's behind the wheel, and there's a trailer on YouTube to digest.
There's no shaking of the hardware hierarchy, although, again, sales are down.
