Did not realize puzzles and dragons was going to sell so well. Good job for Xenoblade and wiiu. So close for Mk8 to crack a million

Poor DQX Wii lol. It should be part of the top 5. Really surprised it's selling pretty well.

And pretty good opening for Xenoblade X too. Please have long legs.

Some evergreen titles get a good bump this week too.

No, that's Week 19 (next week) that the impact on sales will be the most noticeable.

But in any case, GW has been a bit "meh" in the past couple of years, so nothing new (alas).
I thought the first 2 days of golden week were included in this one? With how front-loaded video game sells are, I am not sure how much better week 19 will be.

I've really not been getting folks' expectations here. P&D did drop significantly, which I agree with, but having two Wii U titles sell half-decently (especially considering what L~A is saying above) is surprising to me to say the least.

And here I was guessing 90-100,000 for XenoX.

Or would digital sales bump it into that range?
I would guess so... they pushed the digital version pretty heavily and it doesn't need the packs to help with loading like the disc version.

Also there's a certain number of people with Japanese WiiUs outside of Japan who probably bought the digital version.

Not bad for Xeno i guess. Still a shame that a game like this wouldn't even get 100k in Japan. Get your act together Japan! We need you.

I hope they will also release a remaster when the NX (?) launches.

Sorry for the lack of translation on some titles. Got a bit lazy and I don't know Japanese.

It's the lowest opening for an Experience Inc. DRPG on Vita so far. Not quite sure what caused it, other than the fact that the genre is quite well represented on the console these days:

51 PSV Demon Gaze 25,793 / 60,424
112 PSV Tokyo Shinseiroku: Operation Abyss 16,182 / 22,410
136 PSV Tsurugi no Machi no Ihoujin: Kuro no Oukyuu 11,688 / 16,918
153 PSV Meikyuu Cross Blood: Infinity 10,111 / 12,583

Xenoblade did the same figures of the first one thanks to the bundle, but it is a saga that does not grow and does not generate a lot of interest in Japan.

To Heart 2 probably cannibalized a lot of the sales. DRPGs are long-ass games, you don't need more than one at a time. To Heart being a more established franchise probably helped too.
