Nintendo mascot 's extraterrestrial exploits score big again Ghost Trick, Xenoblade, PS3 Grand Theft Auto: Episodes also cracked the top five, as the DSi XL easily tops hardware charts.

While the Japanese sales charts often highlight games and series that are cherished overseas but largely overlooked in the West, they can also underscore just how broad the appeal for other franchises can be.

When Mario is really a check, he reveals the romance.

Super Mario Galaxy 2 topped Media Create's Japanese sales charts again for June 14-20, its fourth week of release. While the 52,978 copies it sold over that stretch were a far cry from the nearly 340,000 sold in its debut week, the game still topped the week's charts handily. Super Mario Galaxy 2 more than doubled the sales total of the second-best-selling game, Capcom's supernatural DS adventure game, Ghost Trick.
