News - Killzone 2

Killzone 2 is even popular in Japan
Posted on February 4, 2009 by Nick
 

Japan is the equivalent of a no man's land when it comes to first person shooters.  Even quality shooters like Bioshock or Call of Duty 4 have failed to sell anymore than 50,000 copies in the region.  Which makes it even more surprising that Killzone 2 has reached a top 10 spot on Amazon Japan's video game best seller list.

Just last Saturday, Killzone 2 was announced for the Land of the Rising Sun, due out in April.  Though the title isn't the best selling PS3 game, a spot held by Yakuza 3,  Killzone 2 is sitting pretty at the number 8 spot.  This is just shy of Resident Evil 5, and is even ahead of the highly anticipated 360 exclusive, Star Ocean 4.

Could Killzone 2 be the trojan horse western developers have been looking for to break into the region?  We'll find out in April.

Killzone 2 is a first person shooter, developed by Guerilla Games.  The highly anticipated title is due out on February 27.
