    Behind ACV's PS3 release (Xbox 360 edition placed #6), Resident Evil: Revelations also made a respectable entrance, selling nearly 150,000 copies, one of the best debuts for the franchise on a Nintendo platform. Monster Hunter 3G, also a Capcom 3DS title, continues to sell well, moving over 27,000 units last week.

    In fact, 3DS games from Nintendo and third-party publishers made up more than half of Japan's top ten software sales chart, thanks to Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land, Sega's Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure, and Level-5's Inazuma Eleven Go: Shine / Dark.

    The complete top 20 chart for the week ending January 29, 2012, as supplied by Media Create and translated by NeoGAF, is shown below:

    What I meant was I didn't expect it to be selling so well in Japan.
