Band Bros. Replaces Derby Training As Current Japanese Obsession

Illustration for article titled Band Bros. Replaces Derby Training As Current Japanese Obsession

It may have settled for a third place showing last week, but with less fierce competition the week after Daigasso! Band Bros. DX gets a chance to shine in the top spot. Media Create's Japanese software ranking shows drifting drama Initial D Extream Stage relegated to second. Not bad for a PS3 game (still), but a low key week across the board.


Little in the way of new debuts makes for a rather dry chart. Still, if you want to see how the PS2 port of Ratchet & Clank: Size Matters fared, it's after the jump.

@everybest: There was a Band Brothers game before. With the old one there was a GBA cartridge as an expansion. With this one you can download 100 songs to the cart, but you can't delete them for licensing reasons.
