One Piece: Gigant Battle is a fighting game based on the popular manga series One Piece, and features gameplay similar to that of Smash Bros. or the Japanese-only Jump Superstars, which also included characters from the One Piece manga.

Nintendo's Metroid: Other M, which made its debut last week at number three, dropped to number five this week with just 11,239 units sold—only 24% of what it sold the previous week.

Other new titles this week include Vitamin X: Evolution Plus and Sengoku Efuda Yuugi: Hototogisu Tairan for PSP, which landed at numbers eight and 10, respectively.

Games that fell from the top 10 include Square-Enix's reprint of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and PSP fighting game Bleach: Heat the Soul 7.

Yuke published UFC 2010 Undisputed 2010 made its debut this week, but failed to reach the top 10, landing at number 16.
