The Wii's original role-playing game The Last Story has been knocked from its first place perch in Japan by the legal powers of Capcom's Gyakuten Kenji 2, the latest game in the portable Ace Attorney series.
The combined powers of Miles Edgeworth, Macross, White Knight Chronicles and Dragon Ball made for a top ten full of new faces, comprised solely of PSP, Nintendo DS and Wii games. Those new bestsellers mean Mistwalker's The Last Story had to settle for seventh place this week, perhaps not a good sign for its continued sales in Japan.
Monster Hunter Portable 3rd and Donkey Kong Country Returns continue to move in Japan, with the other Western made title, Dragon Age: Origins, hanging in the top twenty for one more week.
