Evergreen franchise Dynasty Warriors has dominated the Japanese weekly sales charts, with the game selling 253,000 units on the PlayStation 3.
Known as Shin Sangoku Musou 6 in Japan, what will be released in the West as Dynasty Warriors 7 outperformed the first week sales of its predecessor by as much as 50,000 units.
Although a Sony exclusive in Japan, an Xbox 360 version of the game will be released alongside the PlayStation 3 version on March 29 in North America, and on April 8 in Europe.
The rest of the Japanese chart has seen little meaningful movement, with only two other new entries in the top 10 - both of which are anime tie-ins unlikely to see release in the West.
3DS releases Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle and nintendogs + cats both held onto the same chart positions for the third week in a row. Professor Layton at number three sold 29,000 units this week and nintendogs + cats 24,000 units.
Hardware results for all consoles will be released tomorrow.
