Square Enix's Dragon Quest IX held onto its number one spot in its second week on sale in Japan, flirting dangerously close with 3 million copies sold in a rather short amount of time. Success!

DQ IX easily outperformed the week's second bestselling title, Konami's baseball sim Pro Yakyuu Spirits 6 for the PlayStation 3, which forced Wii Sports Resort into third place. The rest of the top ten is filled with recently familiar bestsellers, including Nintendo's Tomodachi Collection and Sega's Miku Hatsune Project Diva.

A handful of new debuts, including the latest repackaging of Ys I & II made their way into Media Create's top thirty bestselling games. We'll know next week if Dragon Quest IX can hold onto its lead (that's a safe bet) and if Japanese PlayStation 3 owners shine to Katamari Forever.
