Resident Evil wins this week in sales unsurprisingly, considering the series’ immense popularity in Japan and positive scores from Famitsu. An interesting title to keep an eye on is Sol Trigger, on 4th place in sales. This turn-based RPG developed by Image Epoch (Luminous Arc, Arc Rise Fantasia) may or may not be seeing a western release, considering the fact that it’s on the PSP which is nearing the end of its lifecycle. Image Epoch HAS however registered a trademark for the game’s title in English, so there may still be hope.
