So, the fourth and final chapter in the .hack series tops the chart this week. For those of you that don't know, it emulates an online game...without the need for going online! The first one only recently received a US release, and it's hoped the other three will make it as well! Anyway, despite a PS2 game being No.1, Nintendo had a relatively strong week, with Enix's Dragon Quest Monsters game on the GBA only dropping one to No.2, Tomy's long-awaited Naruto straight in at No.4 on the GC and the quirky Made In Wario (which, for some reason, has a different name in the US, and another slightly different one for Europe!) actually climbing up to No.5! Rounding off the ten is Zelda on the GBA, falling two places this week. Other matters of note: Soul Calibur II on the GC is now above both the XBOX and PS2 versions, up three to No.12, Asmik's also long-awaited Dokapon DX is in at No.13 and look, Zelda: The Wind Waker rockets back up eighteen places to No.31!

Thank-you please!
