Japan charts: new Dragon Quest at No. 1

Wii and handheld titles dominate top 30.

New DS title Dragon Quest VI: Maboroshi no Daichi has gone straight to the top of the Japanese charts, according to Media Create.

Another newcomer, End of Eternity for PS3, is in second place, while old timer New Super Mario Bros. Wii is third. The Xbox 360 version of EoE is at number eight, making it the only game for Microsoft's console in the chart.

There are 9 PSP games in the top 30, making Sony's handheld the winner this week. But not by much - the Wii is behind with eight titles while the DS is on seven. Ye olde PS2 only managed to get one game in there at No. 21, the spectacular-sounding Princess Saver! Eternal Love for My Lady. 10/10 surely. Unless that's the Japanese name for Dante's Inferno.
