Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D enters in the top spot.

It was another slow week in Japan in terms of video game sales as, for a second consecutive week, the best-selling game sold well below 100,000 units.

Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, which was released last week, debuted in the top spot with sales of 58,792. The game easily outsold the runner-up, One Piece Unlimited Cruise Special, which fell one slot from last week. It shifted 16,753 units last week, bringing its lifetime total to 97,241.

Battle & Get! Pokémon Typing DS continued to perform well in the third spot, as did Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 2 - Professional in the fourth position. Both titles sold approximately 11,000 units last week.

Pandora's Tower for the Wii took a sharp tumble down to the eight position, selling 8,436 copies. It has shifted 29,881 units in its two weeks on the market.

In terms of hardware, the Nintendo 3DS saw a rise for the second consecutive week, though it was still marginally beat out by the PlayStation Portable. The PlayStation 3 also beat out the Wii by 10,000 units.
