Dynasty Warriors 7 still on top in slow Japanese chart

Top three static as lack of new releases sees sales plummet in weekly results

There has been no change in top three selling games of the week in Japan, with a very slow week of sales overall and no major new releases of note.

What effect the continuing earthquake disaster is having on the country's games business is unclear, but the stimulus from the launch of the Nintendo 3DS is already waning and there has been little else to excite the market this week.

Dynasty Warriors 7 remained the number one seller, but could manage only an additional 67,000 units after its 250,000 debut last week.

Square Enix's Dissidia 012[duodecim] Final Fantasy remained the second biggest seller on 31,000 units and Professor Layton And The Mask of Miracle, still the best-selling 3DS title, kept its third place position with 18,000 sales.

The highest new entry of the week was Konami's Powerful Golf for Nintendo DS at number nine, but the title managed only a paltry 10,000 unit sales. As a result it only just came in ahead of Idea Factory's visual novel Hanaoni: Koisomeru Koku - Eikyuu no Shirushi, also on a rounded-down 10,000.

The only other new entries in the top 30 were Ubisoft's Splinter Cell 3D for the 3DS at number 18 and BioWare expansion (published by Spike in Japan) Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening at number 22.
