Mass Effect 3 cracks Japanese Top 20

22 March 2012

BioWare RPG Mass Effect 3 has entered the Japanese software charts at no.20, with the PlayStation 3 version of the sci-fi sequel shifting approximately 8,142 copies.

Further up the charts, the phenomenon that is Pokemon takes the no.1 spot, with Pokemon + Nobunaga’s Ambition for DS selling a whopping 172,027 units.

Despite this, Sony’s aging PlayStation Portable proves it’s still worth a punt after all these years, with three games for the handheld making the top five, alongside PS3 outing One Piece Pirate Musou.
