LittleBigPlanet 2 makes Japan top 10

But sales are well down on original.

LittleBigPlanet 2 entered the Japanese chart at five this week, but sales were well down on its predecessor.

According to the latest Media Create rundown, as reproduced on NeoGAF, the sequel to Media Molecule's DIY platformer sold 24,648 copies in its first week. In contrast, the original sold 52,000 when it launched in 2008.

Elsewhere on the chart, PSP RPG Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology 3 came out on top, just behind PlayStation 3 button-masher Samurai Warriors 3 Z. The PS3 version of Red Dead Redemption's Undead Nightmare expansion debuted at number seven.
