Sales were down again this week, even more than last week’s meager sales. The Top 10 slots underwent some change, but the top selling titles remain the same as before.

Nintendo saw mixed results within the Top 10, as Smash Brothers relinquished third place to Momotaro Dentetsu X, and Animal Forest + climbed two slots to sixth place. Overall, Nintendo system software accounted for 11 of the Top 30 selling games this week, down from 14 last week.

The biggest mover this week was YU-GI-OH! for the GBA, dropping from 11th and 15th places during previous weeks to nearly off the chart at 29th this week.

New to the Top 30 this week were two of the newest GBA offerings, Snap Kids and Gradius Generation. Be sure to watch these both in the coming weeks, as well as the most recent GameCube release, Hyper Sports 2002 Winter.
