Tales Of Tales & Japan's Weekly Sales

Illustration for article titled Tales Of Tales  Japans Weekly Sales

Last week's sales champ, Sengoku Basara 3, was soundly defeated by Namco's latest Tales game, which draws upon the powers of a big PSP install base and Japan's love of doe-eyed anime-style characters. How well did Tales of Phantasia do?


Well enough to outsell Wii Party! Tales of Phantasia: Narikiri Dungeon X moved an impressive, first place spot-winning 108,000 copies during its debut week, enough to force Wii Party to settle for second. Not bad for a PSP remake... of a remake? Honestly, I'm thoroughly confused by just how deeply the remakes go for Tales of Phantasia. Any superfans that can provide more insight?


There are a handful of other new entries on this week's chart, including the sexy-sounding StormLover, Tetris Party Premium and the "special edition" release of Assassin's Creed II.
