Mario Super Sluggers 3rd in Japanese Sales

Mario Super Sluggers on Famitsu Top 3Just behind Super Robot Battle for PSP and Metal Gear Solid 4, Mario Super Sluggers (Called: Mario Stadium Family Baseball in Japan) is number three for game sales according to Famitsu’s retail ranking from June 16-22. This shows extremely strong sales for the title since it was released on the 19th of this month, three days after Famitsu started their ranking numbers and has already hit the top three. Additionally, the chart shows little signs of a sell-out, which means sales have remained steady despite a low frenzy-factor.

I’ve been in Los Angeles since the end of May for the convention circuit but I’m heading back on the 12th, so you can bet we’ll be previewing this game at least a month ahead of it’s US release.
