Japanese Charts: Taiko Drum Master Wii Leads Nintendo Chart Takeover

The highest selling game of the week is Namco Bandai's new Taiko Drum Master title for the Wii, with 106,000 unit sales. Originally an arcade and then PlayStation 2 franchise, the rhythm action game features the traditional Japanese drums and a wide variety of Western and Japanese music. As with the earlier DS versions the game's mass market appeal has transferred easily to the Wii.

The only other new entry in the top ten is Konami's Penguin no Mondai: Saikyou Penguin Densetsu! for the DS at number five. The Kirby-esque platformer debuted with 59,000 unit sales. (Industry, Taiko Drum Master, Wii)
