Japanese software sales, September 8-14

By Patrick Garratt, Thursday, 18 September 2008 06:41 GMT

Two big success stories this week in Japan: Pokemon Platinum and Infinite Undiscovery. The power of Pokemon clearly hasn’t waned that much, with the latest in the series nearly hitting 1 million sales in two days, and Square 360 RPG flies in at number three with a respectable 90,000 debut. Microsoft’s probably quite pleased.

  • Pokémon Platinum out in May

    Pokémon Platinum, an extended version of 2007’s Diamond and Pearl, will release in the UK on May 22. New stuff in the latest for the monster-hunting RPG includes enhanced Wi-Fi combat and a “brand new Distortion World, governed by neither time nor space”. Which sounds sensational. More on CVG.
