Nintendo's offbeat rhythm game still on top despite new Queen's Gate and Devil Survivor game; 3DS tumbles to fourth place.
Even with a second demonic invasion and fan service aplenty, Rhythm Heaven for the Wii is still holding out strong in first place on the latest Media Creates chart for Japan for the week of July 25 to July 31. The demanding and quirky rhythm game sold 81,938 copies on its second week. Meanwhile, newcomers Queen's Gate: Spiral Chaos for the PSP and Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 for the DS are at second and third place respectively. The former sold 66,959 units while the latter sold 63,008.
Queen's Gate: Spiral Chaos is an RPG based on the popular visual combat books that feature suggestive depictions of female characters in combat. The game also features characters from other videogame properties like Mai Shiranui from the Fatal Fury and King of Fighters series, Dizzy from the Guilty Gear series, Ivy from the SoulCalibur series, Lili from the Tekken series, and Cham Cham and Iroha from the Samurai Shodown series. Devil Survivor 2 pits players in the shoes of a male protagonist and his classmates as they combat the Septentrion invaders from taking over Japan. Gamers combat them by recruiting demons via devil pact-signing and engaging foes in a combination of turned-based combat and grid-based movement.
Other notable numbers include Wii Sports Resort still being on the top 10 with 20,424 units sold. The PS3 version of military simulator Operation Flashpoint: Red River makes its debut on the charts on 11th place with 13,331 units sold. The PS3 version of action RPG Dungeon Siege III is also on the charts on 18th place with 6,576 units sold on its debut week.
On the hardware front, the 3DS drops significantly to fourth place, selling 16,415 units, which is more or less half of the number sold on the previous sales chart. Both of Sony's consoles are on pole positions, with the PSP placed first with 36,659 units sold and the PS3 on second place with 20,704 units sold. The Wii is on third place with 18,232 units sold.
