Rising Star enjoys Wii chart success

No More Heroes debuts at four in Wii charts

Critically-acclaimed Wii release No More Heroes has made it to fourth in the Wii charts, according to Chart Track.

The result follows a concentrated PR campaign by publisher Rising Star Games and game designer, Suda51. The game, which received much acclaim from the specialist press, also made it into the top 20 in the All Format Charts.

"We are weeping with delight. Especially as sales should improve further with the TV campaign moving up a gear from tonight,” said Rising Star managing director Martin Defries. “It is a verification of all the posturing and ambitious claims made these past months. I think a 'told you so' would be apt at some point.”

“Thanks to Nintendo and the Wii console. Thanks to Mastertronic for their sales efforts and all our retail partners. Most of all thanks to Grasshopper for the greatest of products"

The latest in Rising Star’s Harvest Moon franchise, Harvest Moon: Magical Melody, also hit store shelves last week. Making it to 18th in the Nintendo Wii Top 30.

Yeah, I really feel for them. I bet the staff at Nintendo offices now have furniture and stationary forged from condensed cash as the company has so much it doesn't know what to do with it.
