Smash Bros. conquers Japan chart again

Nintendo claims 22 spots in top 30.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl has battled its way to the top of the Japan charts for a second week running, after busting through the one-million-sales barrier after just 11 days on sale.

It sold just over a quarter of a million copies this week, according to Media Create figures, and was miles ahead of second place tongue-twister Mobile Suit Gundam: Gihren's Ambition, The Axis Threat on PSP with 123,000. Wii Fit was at three with a paltry 65,000 copies sold.

Meanwhile, the rest of the top ten returned to its Nintendo-dominated state, with seven of the top ten - and 22 of the top 30 - for Wii or DS platforms.

The two anomalies in the list were Devil May Cry 4 for PS3 at four and Tales of Destiny: Director's Cut at nine.

The full chart is as follows:

  1. Super Smash Bros Brawl (Wii)
  2. Mobile Suit Gundam: Gihren's Ambition, The Axis' Threat (PSP)
  3. Wii Fit (Wii)
  4. Devil May Cry 4 (PS3)
  5. Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games (DS)
  6. Wii Sports (Wii)
  7. L, the Prologue to Death Note: Rasen's Trap (DS)
  8. Family Ski (Wii)
  9. Tales of Destiny: Director's Cut (PS2)
  10. Mario Party DS (DS)
