mario-luigiNo, unfortunately we have no upcoming project announced, something like Street Fighter vs. Super Mario Universe, but the battle is still on, sales-wise. And unfortunately for Capcom, Ryu and the company were not able to defeat upon launch Mario and Luigi RPG in Japan, Nintendo’s game grabbing the top spot in the sales charts.

This does not mean that Street Fighter IV is a poor game (it did sell well, after all), but it just had an unfortunate release. However, more than likely, the US and UK charts will be completely different. But we’ll see. Until then, the Japanese sales chart is below, via Chartget:

01. [NDS] Mario & Luigi RPG 3 (Nintendo) 193,000
02. [PS3] Street Fighter IV (Capcom) 86,000
03. [PSP] Kidou Senshi Gundam: Giren no Yabou (Namco Bandai) 40,000
04. [PS2] Kidou Senshi Gundam: Giren no Yabou (Namco Bandai) 38,000
05. [360] Street Fighter IV (Capcom) 38,000
06. [PSP] Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 (Konami) 27,000
07. [PS2] Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 (Konami) 25,000
08. [PS3] Demon’s Souls (SCE) 22,000
09. [PSP] Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology 2 (Namco Bandai) 22,000
10. [NDS] Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time (Square Enix) 20,000

Some might consider strange to see the PS3 version of Street Fighter selling so much more compared to the Xbox 360 version, but this should not be considered a huge surprise since it’s well known that Microsoft’s console popularity in Japan was never a great one. It’s still a nice win for Sony. But we’re waiting for the Western charts to round the numbers up.
