Illustration for article titled Pokemon Silver  Gold Remakes Steal Gundams Top Spot In Japan

Last week, Bandai's latest Gundam game for the PlayStation 3 took the top spot on Japan's list of bestselling games. Typically, that territory is saved for Nintendo DS and Wii games. Well, things are back to normal.


As you may already know, Pokemon Soul Silver and Pokemon Heart Gold sold a lot. Close to 1.5 million copies in a week between the two. Not bad. Also selling well (once again) was Nintendo's Tomodachi Collection, the latest Nintendo DS game to cross the million mark. Also holding strong? Dragon Quest IX.


Square Enix's RPG hit is soon to surpass 4 million units sold in Japan, getting ever closer to the 5 million the company eventually expects to sell. Perhaps those expectations were set a little too low?

Not much in the way of new debuts for the week, with GPS-powered travel software Maplus: Portable Navi 3 cracking the top ten and budget versions of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare for the PS3 and Xbox 360 just missing a top ten showing. Here's the full list...
