God Eater 2 will allow you to import items from your Gods Eater Burst save file, although not your character. Siliconera reports the amount of items you’ll be able to import will vary depending on your completion and play time, so if you’re hanging out for the follow-up it’s probably a good idea to invest some more time in the original. God Eater 2 is the sequel to the game released in the west as Gods Eater Burst; it has not been confirmed for localisation, but hits Japan sometime later this year, on PSP and Vita.

Pick up God of War: Ascension from a US GameStop outlet before March 24, and you’ll score a pretty sweet bonus – the God of War Saga, bundling all five previous games together. That’s a lot of game for the price of one new release, and pretty handy if you’ve never checked out Kratos’s adventures. The PlayStation 3-exclusive Ascension is a prequel, so you can even play them in order.

Persona 2: Eternal Punishment, which was released this week on PSN as a PSone classic, isn’t compatible with Vita or PSP as of yet. While it’s playable on PS3, Sony said it is working on a fix which will make the game playable on the portable systems, as was promised when it was announced. According to a post on the PS forums from community manager Morgan Haro, “worst case scenario” is that it may be a few weeks before you can take your Persona 2: Eternal Punishment on-the-go. We’ll keep on top of this for you, and as soon as we hear anything more, we’ll let you know. Thanks, Joystiq.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance was the clear winner on the Media Create charts in Japan, moving 308,681 units on PS3. 3DS sales were down, but both models still maintained the numer one and two spots on the hardware chart. PS3 took third place with an uptick in sales, moving 18,529 units compared to 16,934 the week prior, likely this can be attributed to the release of MGR: Revengeance. Vita sales were also up over the week prior to 11,456 compared to the 8,044 units sold the prior period. It’s unclear when looking at the top 20 what caused the surge in sales, but the handheld outsold Wii U for the first time. Full charts are below.
