Weekly Sales: Pokemon Continues to Dominate, Slow Start for Anarchy Reigns and Dokuro

Platinum's latest beaten by Ghost Recon.

 
Slow start for Platinum's latest, even with that Bayonetta crossover.

Pokemon Black & White 2 remained in first place in Enterbrain's weekly sales chart for the third week in a row, selling 181,756 units to bring its three week total to 2,217,227 units.

For the second week in a row, Pokemon stayed atop the pack despite a flood of new releases on all major systems. Etrian Odyssey IV (3DS) placed second in its debut week with 97,142 units. Little Battler eXperience Explosive Boost (3DS) debuted in third with 55,614 units. Toriko Gourmet Survival 2 (PSP) had a fourth place debut with 43,790 units.

A bit lower on the chart, Platinum's latest action title Anarchy Reigns debuted in eighth place with 21,199 units on PlayStation 3. The Xbox 360 debuted in 28th place with 4,170 units. Both versions were beaten by Ghost Recon Future Soldier, which also debuted this week on both platforms.

Closing out the chart was Dokuro, Gamearts second PlayStation Vita title following Ragnarok Odyssey. This debuted in 29th place with just 3,194 units.
