God Eater 2 Conquers Japan According to Major Retailer's Sales Charts

Like every Monday the major Japanese retail and rental chain Tsutaya released its weekly sales charts, that are usually considered an interesting glimpse on what the Media Create charts will look like on Wednesday, since Tsutaya has a very large number of stores scattered across the whole country.

No surprises this week, as God Eater 2 came to give the coup de grâce to the Pokémon weekly domination, that was already broken last week by Battlefield 4.

You can check out the chart below, with new titles bolded.

  1. God Eater 2 – PS Vita
  2. Winning Eleven 2014 – PS3
  3. Call of Duty: Ghosts – PS3
  4. God Eater 2 – PSP
  5. Daigasso! Band Brothers P – 3DS
  6. Battlefield 4 – PS3
  7. Winning Eleven 2014 – PSP
  8. Pokemon X – 3DS
  9. Jikkyou Powerful Pro Baseball 2013 – PS3
  10. Pokemon Y – 3DS
  11. Grand Theft Auto V – PS3

As said above, God Eater 2 has been released last week, and immediately jumped to the top of the charts for PS Vita. Even the PSP version seems to have sold strongly, grabbing 4th place and overtaking last week’s first place entry, Battlefield 4.

In comparison Call of Duty: Ghosts, that still had the full marketing power of Square Enix pushing it, has been relegated to third place by the latest entry of the Winning Eleven (Pro Evolution Soccer) franchise, that continues to be quite popular in Japan.

It’ll be very interesting to see the Media Create charts this Wednesday, not only to get a precise number of God Eater 2‘s retail sales, but also because we’ll finally see the effects of the launch of the PS Vita TV.
