Very good debut for EO4, let's see if it's front loaded or if it could race for the LTD record.
Positive debut also for the third edition of the same game (Level 5!!!...) of LBX on 3DS.

12./14. [3DS] Mario Tennis Open 9.323 / 249.844 (-23%)

Also Mario Tennis is still performing very but the record goes to

18./20. [3DS] Monster Hunter 3G #- 5.430 / 1.485.630 (-1%)

I said wow!


Waiting for Pokemon comparisons.

Looks like the addition of a Casual difficulty in EO4 did nothing for its sales.
The figure is almost constant with previous releases. Quite a solid fanbase, Atlus has built.
To be fair, those previous releases were on much larger userbases. I think we'll get a better picture over the next few weeks - in particular, I was somewhat surprised at how front-loaded EO2 and EO3 were (while EO1 was somewhat more of a sleeper hit); I'm wondering if this'll match EO2/3 sales pattern or, if being on a new system and perhaps opened to a new audience, it could end up closer to EO1.

Isn't that the best opening for an EO game since the first? You've got to give it to Atlus, like you said they really have built up a solid fanbase for EO over the last few years.

Does anyone know if Culdcept's numbers so far should be considered good or bad? I'm curious to know if Nintendo's use of that sexy female presenter paid off or not.
