It wasn't the best first week for Nintendo and Monolith Soft's Disaster: Day of Crisis in its native land. The Wii survival adventure landed at the number ten spot, trounce by new Super Robot Taisen and Kinnikuman entries on the PlayStation 2. Also beating out Disaster were new PS3 titles Aquanaut's Holiday and Cross Edge, the multi-publisher fan service-filled RPG that pits Prinnies against Darkstalkers' most be-fanged characters. Or something! The good news for Nintendo is that Wii titles don't always have their best showing in the first week. Disaster may reverse its fortunes on next week's Media Create sales chart. Or maybe the week after that. We'll see. 1. Super Robot Taisen Z (PS2) - 366,493 / NEW 2. Pokémon Platinum (DS) - 195,479 / 1,474,000 3. Rhythm Tengoku Gold (DS) - 65,257 / 852,000 4.

I'm really glad that SuperRobot Taisen Z is doing well. it's a great game. I hope that Banpresto can keep the good work with the outstanding animations.
