Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance slashes to top spot in Japan weekly sales
Konami’s Metal Gear spin-off beats Dragon Quest VII 3DS port and Animal Crossing: New Leaf for the week of February 18.
While the Metal Gear series isn’t known for being a stylistic action title, it seemed gamers in Japan didn’t mind the genre deviation one bit as Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance took the top spot in local sales charts last week.
According to the recent Media Create sales data for the week of February 18 (via Famitsu), Konami and Platinum Games’ action title sold 308,681 units on its debut week. The PS3 version was the only one available in Japan. Konami stated that the Xbox 360 was cancelled due to various reasons.
Within the top five sales list, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance beat out the Dragon Quest VII port for the 3DS and Animal Crossing: New Leaf, as well as newcomers Magi: The Labyrinth of Beginning for the 3DS and Toaru Majutsu no Kagaku no Ensemble for the PSP. The game was praised last week for its combat and story. For more information, check out GameSpot’s review.
