StarCraft II is out. People are buying it. People are playing it. Not everybody, though. Japan, for example.

Amazon rankings are sample set of Amazon customers, but they are also a good measure to see what has captured the imagination of the buying public. Here is Amazon.com:

Amazon UK:

Amazon Canada:

Amazon Germany:

Amazon France:

And Amazon Japan, where the number one title is the latest game from visual novel maker Type Moon!

While StarCraft II is not getting a localized Japanese language release — hence, the tepid interest. However, it is possible to play the game on U.S. servers from Japan.

Update: The imported version of StarCraft II has jumped to number 5 on the Amazon Japan charts. The country is catching StarCraft II fever! Impressive. All that is missing is a localized version.
