Japan Still Gorging On God Eater

Illustration for article titled Japan Still Gorging On God Eater

The Monster Hunter-aping formula of God Eater gives the PlayStation Portable its second week atop the Japanese games sales charts, once again proving that hunting big bosses with giant weapons on Sony's handheld is the path to success.


God Eater and regular bestsellers such as Dragon Quest VI and New Super Mario Bros. Wii outsold the fresh competition, which includes the bloody Wii hack and slasher from Sandlot Zangeki no REGINLEIV and the Japanese debut of Sacred 2. Shame about Zangeki no REGINLEIV managing only ninth place in its debut week, fancy black game case and all. Let's hope it's one of those Wii titles that sprouts legs and encourages a domestic release of the action game.
