Famitsu Software Stuff
Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology 2 continues doing well in its second week. It's now the top Tales of the World title

as well as having the highest total of any Tales since late 2006's Tales of Destiny PS2 remake.

Taiko no Tatsujin Wii (3314) is no longer the fastest-selling Taiko game for its age, falling behind PS2's Taiko 3 (1284). Taiko 3 is currently has the second-highest Taiko total on record, while Taiko Wii is sixth.

Inazuma Eleven reappears on the charts. This is its first time in the Top 30 this year, but it must never been too far from it; it's gained about 46K since we last saw it in the 2008 Top 100 list.
