Image for article titled Giant Robot Games Still Tops In Japan

Mechs? Japan loves 'em! We know, because last week, Super Robot Taisen K topped Media Create software charts and this week it's Mobile Suit Gundam: Senjou no Kizuna Portable outselling everything else.


The PlayStation Portable title handily bested all non-giant robot games with a sales missile barrage to the tune of 85,000 units. It was followed by Makai Senki Disgaea 2 Portable giving PSP software spots one and two on the charts. Will that put the handheld at the top of the hardware chart? Oh, the excitement of it all!

Plenty of new debuts this week, many of which could not crack the top ten, thanks to the continued selling power of games like Mario & Luigi RPG3!!! and Resident Evil 5.
