Weekly Sales: Taiko Drum Master and Pocket Soccer League Debut at Top, Time Travelers Vita Beats 3DS Version

 
Time Travelers is an original adventure game from Jiro Ishii of Chunsoft and 428 fame.

Pokemon Black & White 2 remained atop the Enterbrain weekly sales chart this week with another 113,901 units, bringing its life to date total to 2,331,128 units.

New releases slowed down from the week prior, but two new 3DS titles did make it to the top of the charts. Taiko Drum Master Chibi Dragon and the Mysterious Orb debuted in second place with 63,388 units. Pocket Soccer League Calciobit debuted in third place with 26,015 units.

Lower in the top 10, we had some multiplatform drama as Level-5's Time Travelers saw simultaneous release on Vita and 3DS. The Vita version came out just slightly on top with 9,887 units, besting the 3DS version's 9,761 units. A PSP version is due for release this week.

Also new this week was the PlayStation Vita version of Resistance, which debuted in fifteenth with 5,277 units.
