Pokémon Mystery Dungeon pair Explorers of Time and Explorers of Darkness reached mainland Europe this week and performed well on the whole, achieving lofty positions in the charts of Holland, Germany, Spain, and Italy (in the UK, they're occupying 21st and 24th place respectively). Cooking Guide (top ten in Ireland, Spain, and Italy) continues to help most Europeans to be better cooks (I emphatically do not count myself in that number), and would you check out that German top ten. Ho boy, go Deutschland!

Next week, we'll see whether or not Guitar Hero: On Tour can match the runaway success of the U.S. version. Will Activision's outside-the-box marketing techniques have worked?

Note: The Swedish charts will be taking a break during the summer months (which sounds like a terrific idea to us), and should return later this year.
