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.

success in japan doesn't mean localization

thehobbyist1849d ago

Well the publisher isn't Sega so I'm pretty sure it will be localized. And let's not forget the first one was localized.

Misaka_x_Touma1848d ago

localization in west is about the demand not success.

Th4Freak1848d ago

That's not how Sony works, they're localizing a lot of games with no demand in the west like Demon Gaze, Sorcery Saga, Danganronpa.

And considering that God Eater (1) was successful in the west and there's a big demand for GE2 they will localize it.

I know you're used to Nintendo bs but Sony plays in a different league.

Misaka_x_Touma1848d ago (Edited 1848d ago )

those aren't sony games and Spike Chunsoft always localize their games. Dangaronpa is popular in the west.

Nintendo is localizing Bravely Default in west, MH4 in Korea and has help localize a lot 3DS exclusive.

Th4Freak1848d ago (Edited 1848d ago )

Well, that proves how little you know about Sony and PSV.

Several months ago Sony created a Localization Team and their job is to bring 3rd party Japanese games over the west. So about 80% of localized Japanese PSV games are thanks to the LT and Sahid.

And Danranronpa isn't any more popular in the west than Demon Gaze, these are very niche titles with a very small fanbase.

About the 3DS games you're just trying to make Nintendo look good, we both know that only about 5% of the Japanese games are localized.

I think gamers in JP loves these kind of games because of the social aspekt. Makes me wish we had this kind of gamer mentality in the west, I mean not only play online, but actually meeting up on regular basis and have some fun.

These things are way more common than you'd think. There are actually websites like Monster Hunter) and other great websites for organizing LAN parties and stuff. You just gotta look for it and try to push it on your friends and stuff. Throwing Smash Bros. tournaments monthly and it's great.

Protagonist1849d ago

Cool , did not know that, but I guess it is much easier in JP, being from the same country etc. Also the fact that they are much more into handelds than the rest of the world.

thehobbyist1849d ago

Allow me to redirect you to the title of this article.

Yes, that's why I have high expectations for it. That's why I said that it better sell well because it's at the top. :(

Protagonist1849d ago

Shipped 500.000 so I guess the demand is pretty good ;)

GdaTyler1849d ago

Not too long now until we see Vita sales on Media Create/Famitsu!!
