Toukiden PS Vita bundle selling out around Japan

Reports out of Japan show the new PS Vita bundled with Toukiden are selling out fast across Tokyo, with massive demand for both the game and the Vita bundle. The game is sold out on Amazon Japan, and neatly placed above current chart topper The Last of Us in the site's all-formats top 10.

While Vita sales have been ticking over the last few months since the price cut and a few decent releases, it has had few spectacular moments, and this could be the first one in 2013 to get the system moving. (PS Vita, Toukiden)

Didn't Phantasy star online 2 and Soul sacrifice boost it ahead of the 3DS for like, one glorious week? Retailers were selling out

I think you're right, but Toukiden looks more like the traditional Monster Hunter-type game those guys crave.

Soul Sacrifice is a really great game, but not the 'MH clone' people made it out to be - it's different and just great on it's own merits.

Toukiden could fill the 'gap' MH left behind when Capcom turned their backs on Sony gamers...here's hoping so - it's certainly a very good looking game!

If it's taken the number one spot from Last of Us in Japan, it can't be any slouch in the gameplay stakes either! :)

reminds me of the PSP FF7: Crisis Core bundle, no way to find one of these collector PSP beauties!
i ended up going to a very very tiny shop and they had one left :D

This is the game that made me buy a Vita. I can't wait for the overseas release enough.

Until then i have all the PS Plus vita games to get through starting with Ninja Gaiden first.

"Toukiden PS Vita bundle selling out around Japan"

so...what about the rest of the world?
G20WLY  +   763d ago
It's not available in "the rest of the world" until Q4 this year, hence looking at Japan. The game and the bundle released there 27 June.

How's that for a good reason? :P

Played the demo the other day and controls seem very tight! Graphics were pretty good too. It seems to have a hub similar to MH.

It will be interesting to See how it sells.

I think FFX has potential over here too. I'm just worried of the effects MH 3DS will have.

Sony better be planning something big!!!

Good news then. Should mean a big bump in sales in Japan.

About time those Japanese appreciate the PS Vita, we don't even get half the awesome games they are getting and I still appreciate mine.

Don't worry, they will soon or late eventually come to the rest of the world and you can always import them. But as long as it boost Vita's sales coming to the rest of the owrld or not I'm still happy.
The Vita is getting tons of games now, time to show off!

I agree. Wish most were localized. I could use some of those RPG's that it's not easy for me to get my hands on. :( Until then I'll wait or import it.

Hopefully killzone mercenary and tearaway will give a boost to vita sales worldwide. I love the system but it needs more must have games.
GdaTyler  +   762d ago
