The Idolmaster 2

Japanese sales figures for the last week of February have come out, with Sega’s Phantasy Star Portable 2 for PSP topping the charts. More interestingly, Namco Bandai’s The Idolmaster 2 outsold Sony’s Killzone 3 by nearly 10,000 units. But then again, this is Japan we’re talking about.

Disgaea 4 sits in a healthy spot at number four, selling around 79,000 units. For the sake of comparison, Disgaea 3 sold around 55,000 during its first week in Japan. The sequel already has a decent lead.
