Media Create has released its weekly retail chart for Japan, and unsurprisingly, Pokemon Black & White 2 was once again tops with 122,242 units moved. The 3DS and Vita versions of Level-5′s Time Travelers also debuted this week with 27,754 units combined. The strongest debut of the week though, was Taiko Drum Master: Chibi Dragon and the Mysterious Orb with 65,642.

3Ds was still the reigning king of the hardware chart, but sales fell a bit over last week. Despite a slight upsurge in PS3 sales, hardware a rather flat over the previous week.

    Because my eyes lied to me by seeing 119, 648 units. :/ I numerically dyslexic and see double sometimes. True story.

    Also, the source figures were wrong. Look for the updated numbers in about 5 minutes.

    EDIT: The source updated with the correct figures, and now those are in above.
