And the number one XBox 360 video game in Japan?
Guitar Hero II? Madden NFL 08? Guess again.
It's "Eternal Sonata," which the creators describe as a role playing game "set in the fever dreams of Frederic Chopin. On his deathbed, Chopin dreams of a world in terrible danger. Fortunately, ten heroes are willing to band together and battle the evil Count Waltz. Each character comes with their own musical influences and unique attacks."
In Japan it's called Chopin No Yume. And yes, this video game has a Chopin soundtrack (btw, that's Russian pianist Stanislav Bunin performing the Chopin):
