The top-seller in this week has certainly been Sega's anime based Gamecube™ fighter Bleach GC! Tasogare Ni Mamieru Shinigami. After Tomy's Naruto: Gekitou Ninja Taisen 4, it's the second anime Christmas hit for Nintendo's platform this Winter.

PlayStation2™ higlights from this week include Namco's drum game Taiko no Tatsujin: Wai Wai Happy Muyome (Japanese, with controller and Asia), Sony's RPG Rogue Galaxy (Japanese/Asia) as well as Sega's Ryu ga Gotoku.
