Wii Fit exercises its domination over Super Mario Galaxy.
The latest Media Create Japanese software charts proved what everyone expected: Wii Fit sold big in Japan. However, despite it selling 261,000 units, it wasn’t enough to reach the top position.
That honour was taken by Professor Layton and the Devil’s Box for the Nintendo DS, which managed a staggering 293,000 in its first week. It should be noted however, that Wii Fit sells at 8,800 yen ($80), compared to DS software at 4,800 yen ($43). Also, Wii Fit was released at the end of the week, whereas Professor Layton came out nearer the beginning of the week.
Other noteworthy contenders were Dragon Quest IV on DS managing another 134,000 units to reach the No. 4 spot. Mario Party DS at No. 6 also notched up a respectable 79,000 units, almost double that of Mario and Sonic at the Olympics on Wii, which placed at No. 9.
Super Mario Galaxy was again just beaten out of the top ten, but this time by Duel Monsters World Championship 2008 on the DS, which sold 34,000 units.
