Japanese Gamers Choose Girly Fashion Over Wii Music

Illustration for article titled Japanese Gamers Choose Girly Fashion Over Wii Music

Last week's Japanese software chart champ Wii Music might not have the legs of Nintendo's other first party Wii efforts if its second week performance is any indication. The music game dropped to fifth place amid new competition from Nintendo's own Wagamama Fashion: Girls Mode and Atlus' Devil Summoner: Kuzunoha Raidou tai Abaddon Ou. The latter would've topped the charts, if both the limited edition and regular edition were counted as one release by Media Create, for the record. Not much else in the way of exciting software sales battles, but, hey, NBA Live 09 charted. So... there's that. 01. Wagamama Fashion: Girls Mode (DS) - 76,000 / NEW 02.

Somebody tell me why we care so much about Japan again? Everything is always Wii / DS / PS2 / PSP.

It never changes... EVER. You get the occasional PS3 game, and rarely see a 360 game. Same song, different tune.
