Tales of Phantasia wins in Japan

Chris loves reporting the Japanese sales numbers, especially when not a single PSP title appears on the list. I, on the other hand, love to report the sales numbers when we win. The PSP hasn't had too many first place victories. In fact, it's only had one so far: SD Gundam (which I reported to you guys). This week, Sony's handheld manages to secure another first place victory amongst a plethora of DS games. Check out the sales data:

1. (PSP, Bandai Namco) Tales of Phantasia Full Voice Edition - 66,263
2. (DS, Nintendo) New Super Mario Bros. - 53,011 / 3,027,038
3. (DS, Square Enix) Final Fantasy III - 49,475 / 598,476
4. (DS, Nintendo) Mogitate Tingle no Bara Iro Rupee Land - 32,792
5. (DS, Nintendo) More Brain Age - 32,054 / 3,151,912
6. (DS, Nintendo) Shaberu! DS Cuisine Navi - 25,458 / 445,191
7. (GBA, Nintendo) Rhythm Tengoku - 24,676 / 148,108
8. (DS, Nintendo) Animal Crossing Wild World - 24,027 / 3,205,762
9. (PS2, Sega) Phantasy Star Universe - 20,431 / 140,633
10. (DS, Nintendo) Mario Basket 3 on 3 - 20,372 / 288,136

I'm surprised that a port of a port of an old NES game did so well, but the Japanese sure do love their Tales games. IGN wasn't too fond of the game, saying there aren't enough improvements in the game to make it a worthwhile port. And when you consider that the amazing-looking Tales of the World is heading to the PSP soon, I'm surprised by the strong sales of this game. Well, at least it beat the new Tingle RPG which I may or may not have imported. Check after the cut to see some videos from Tales of Phantasia in action.
