Japan: Kingdom Hearts topples Mario

Although Nintendo still reign...

Square Enix have returned to the top of the sales charts in Japan this week with their latest entry in the Kingdom Hearts series.

Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep on PSP has sold a whopping 446,000 copies in its first week, besting New Super Mario Brothers Wii by almost 300,000 sales.

However, Nintendo still dominate on their home turf with seven of the top ten games in Japan being on either Wii or DS.

Joining Kingdom Hearts in the minority is Final Fantasy XIII, which has slipped to sixth after dominating the Christmas period, and SEGA's Phantasy Star Portable 2 on PSP.

Thanks Kotaku.
