It was kind of a barren wasteland for new releases for video game buying friends in Japan, just one new title sneaking into the week's bestsellers games. Still, a little surprising to see New Super Mario Bros. Wii take first.
Nintendo's side-scroller for the Wii clearly has legs. New Super Mario Bros. Wii has been in the top ten since its launch in Japan this past December. But kudos to Mario, Luigi and those Toads (I forget their names) for getting back into first after a three-month break.
