Dragon's Crown selling out in Japan

According to translated tweets, spotted over the weekend, Dragon's Crown is doing better business than Toukiden managed in Japan, with the game nigh on impossible to find in stores. Of course, there's the digital version for gamers to download, but I don't think they count in the major Japanese charts.

Certainly it sounds like the game is on course for the top spots in the chart, although the PS3 version is likely to beat it to No. 1. It went on sale on the 24th and as the most expensive Vanillaware game ever at over $1 million, the only question is just how many were shipped? It looks like the Vita is getting two hit games on the bounce though, which can't be a bad thing for hardware sales. Next up, God Eater 2 in November.
