Dragon Quest Joker 2 rules Japanese game Charts

Looks like Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2 and Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker are the current king of the gaming sales charts in Japan. The two games hold spots one and two again, with a string of Nintendo favorites—New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Tomodachi Collection, Mario Kart Wii and Wii Fit Plus—securing the next four spots. More recent releases like Nier Replicant and Super Street Fighter IV for the PlayStation 3 manage to keep their top ten spots.

Not much activity in this week’s Media Create charts, as Japanese software companies opted not to release any new and noteworthy games this week. Look for recent releases and old favorites (Super Smash Bros. Brawl!) in the top 30 bestsellers list for the week of May 5 to 9.
