Rhythm Tengoku Gold is kicking ass.

Why has this game struck a chord with so many Japanese where its predecessor could not?

Afrika definitely exceeded my expectations.

RTG is a monster. Like I said, my town is all sold out of it again, so expect it to keep putting up the numbers. Too bad so sad for the rest.

And I see Wii's post-Obon dip is going to be a yearly tradition. Maybe Nintendo will be smart enough to counter-program at some point? Nah, I doubt it.

Is there insane advertising or what?

It seems like the huge hits on the handheld over there have been your obvious Pokemons, Dragon Quests, Mario Karts, etc. etc. along with easily marketable and fresh "non-game" stuff like Cooking Navi, Brain Age, etc.

This doesn't reall fit in either category. Good to see nonetheless. :D

Because Media-Create hardware numbers don't come out until tomorrow night.

Just over 2.4 million by the latest Famitsu numbers.

Well yes I know that famitsu hardware data comes out a day before MC, but usually they just wait till MC data comes.

But didn't initial reports put Too Human at 8.8K? It's much higher on the list than Clannad is.

But famitsu does track lower than MC, so we'll just have to wait for that and see. If anything, the rushed announcement and prior release of the PSP version probably cut into the potential sales that would have been gathered from those interested due to the anime/scarcity of the out-of-print PS2 version...

Famitsu had Clannad at 8.2K.

Not even close. There's one game that is a reference back to the original, but that's it.

Not even close. (Twice!) Think more along the lines of Wario Ware based around music and rhythm. Don't even think about it, though - if you like rhythm/music games, and especially like ones that will make you smile, buy it.

Hmm its seems Wii is going into it's slump again like last year.

Last year it was a combined effort of Wii Fit/SSBB/MK Wii (and to a lesser extent SMG) to bring it back up. This year looks like Wii Music and AC Wii will have to do the job. I'm really curious about how the success of AC on the DS will translate to the Wii.

Looks like it's just up my alley then. How hard is it to find a copy of the original?

There's never been a BEST re-release of the GBA game, so maybe they could put it out this year still.

SSBB and MK Wii are "this year" games.

The Minna no Golf 5 audience might be picking it up, but, yeah, there haven't been a lot of these non-core type of titles on the PS3 for precedence.

I thought the predecessor did pretty well considering it was one of the last GBA games. I think it was even given a special case by some retailers to look like a DS game and then put in the DS section.

Rhythm Tengoku Gold is probably just doing better because of the wider market of the DS and increased popularity of that system.
