Rockman Rockman: Selling Like Hotcakes?
This is weird. Very weird.
According to U-Capcom's sales charts, the commercial failure, "Rockman Rockman," has shot up to number three of the highest selling games at E-Capcom in the past month.
Ahead of RR is the ever popular "Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G" and an adorable puppy game. ("One Style Anywhere Tame?")
And just below RR is-Devil May Cry 4? WTH? Seriously. RR is outselling one of Capcom's biggest games of the year.
RR has been absent from sales charts for a couple of years, so why the sudden surge of sales?
My guess is that the PSP is finally starting to catch on in Japan. With the slimmer design and cheaper price tag, gamers are actually starting to notice the console exists.
So, will this actually help chances of a Rockman Rockman 2? Who knows!
