Level 5 is the company that gets to challenge Nintendo’s reign of the top-spots in this week’s Media Create sales. It does so with the newly released Inazuma Eleven Go 2: Chrono Stone Neppu and Raimei, a game based on the anime based on the game also made by Lavel 5 based on the popular sport football (or Soccer, for all you Yankees out there). However, take the term football with a grain of salt, as this RPG rendition of the sport contains a lot more over the top wackyness to say the least (see: the image above). The series is, as you can imagine, immensely popular among Japanese kids. However its western audience, North America in particular, is not nearly as big. As with previous games of the series, Inazuma Eleven Go 2 might eventually see a European release. Seeing how no Inazuma game has yet to reach North America, I’d say all four of you American football soccer fans with an itch for a sport-RPG are out of luck.

Hardware wise, it’s good to see the Wii U still going strong in its second week of sales. Together with the crazy amount of 3DS units sold, it looks as if Japan is going to be enjoying a very merry Nintendo Christmas this year. On the other hand, the Vita is sadly seeing some atrociously low holiday sales. If only more people saw it our way.
