Japan’s Top 10 Games:

    1. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle – Limited Edition (PS3)
    2. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (PS3)
    3. Friend Collection: New Life (3DS)

    10. Danganronpa: Academy of Hope and High School Students of Despair – Best of PSP Edition (PSP)

“JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle” lets many manga characters from Shonen Jump series battle it out. Why? Because it’s awesome! Its “unconventional story mode” is said to be the kind of game all us 3D fighting game fans would love to play in English, alas this Namco Bandai series — that got half a million pre-orders and a perfect score in Famitsu!! — stays put in Japan.

Here’s the epic JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle TV commercial that’s airing in Japan.

And here’s a fan-subbed trailer for the new game’s release this week.

PS: It’s one thing to leave a game like this with many unknowns in Japan, but they better find a way to release “J-Stars Victory VS” internationally. Because that pits Dragon Ball Z, Naruto Shippuden, One Piece, Bleach, Gintama and other popular manga/anime series against each other!

Europe’s Top 10 Games:

    1. Saints Row IV – Commander In Chief Edition (Xbox 360)
    2. Saints Row IV – Commander In Chief Edition (PS3)
    3. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn (PC)
    4. The Last Of Us (PS3)
    5. Minecraft (Xbox 360)
    6. Payday 2 (Xbox 360)
    7. Animal Crossing: New Leaf (3DS)
    8. Rayman Legends (Wii U)
    9. Call of Duty: Black Ops II (Xbox 360)
    10. Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist (Xbox 360)

Deep Silver launched the Volition-developed Saints Row IV last week. Widely acclaimed as the craziest and stupidest fun open world game series there is; there’s aliens and super powers this time. Saints Row IV does not take itself seriously in the least and so far 1+ million fans love it for that.

Here’s the Saints Row IV TV commercial.
