Pokémon Black and White 2 hits 2 million in 2 weeks

Vita gets boost as White colour launches.

DS sequels Pokémon Black and White 2 have together notched up more than two million sales in under a fortnight.

Another 416,850 copies were sold in Japan last week, making for a total of 2,035,471 to date.

PlayStation Vita hardware sales saw a rare surge thanks to the launch of the system's new White colour. 22,638 Vita consoles were sold last week in Japan, up from 13,589 the week before.

Nintendo's 3DS ruled the hardware chart as usual, however. It sold 65,267 units, despite the announcement and imminent arrival of the 3DS XL.

The software chart was peppered with new launches, although PlayStation 3 HD collections Resident Evil Chronicles and Metal Gear Solid HD could only manage sixth and eighth places, respectively.
