02./07. [3DS] Yo-kai Watch <RPG> (Level 5) {2013.07.11} (¥4.800) - 28.933 / 1.176.134 (-2%)
That lil' bugger is just gonna keep on selling even after YW2 launches. Insane stuff. Congrats to Level-5!

If only NCL could have a steady stream of software for the WiiU...
Oh well, I await our new Youkai Watch Overlords tomorrow.
 
#15
About the only news seems like MK passing the 500k threshold. This holiday ought to be an interesting one for Nintendo since the Wii U will have had a library of evergreen titles by then.
 
#19
You are all wrong! Yo-kai Watch 2 will only sell 100 copies, maybe even less!! Freedom wars will reign supreme for the years to come!!

Im afraid to know how many copies YW2 will sell, This is the ultimate calm before the storm 0.o
 
#26
It's funny how Yokai Watch is still selling high last week despite its sequel coming tomorrow. So we'll see 3 Yokai Watch titles in the top 5 next week?
 
#27
It looks like Freedom Wars will end up as at least the second best selling Vita game:

God Eater 2: 387,305
Persona 4 Golden: 256,494
Toukiden: The Age of Demons: 232,577
Freedom Wars: 230,461

Famitsu and Media Create will probably count the 2 versions of the sequel together, like they do with the Pokemon games.

Is this Yo-kai-Watch 2 title everyone is stalking about another 3DS title or is it coming to Wii U?
3DS.
 
#31
Freedom Wars with the hold. Maybe this time Sony will find a way to turn it into a successful franchise going forward instead of a good one time game.
 
#33
Woo, half a million for Mario Kart 8, Persona Q should reach 250k in a couple of weeks, 4.1 million for Pokemon X/Y next week and Yokai Watch rises in anticipation of the sequel.

It's going to be crazy to see Yokai Watch 2 blow past the first game in a matter of weeks.
 
#34
What begins?

Edit: wouldnt 360 plus downloads push it over 800k? The game was probably imported like hell too.
GTA5 has had insane legs for a western game. Unprecedented.

Launched at 304k and is now at 722k. GTA bargain editions, now that I look at it, do really well too. The PS2 Vice city one started at 4k and ended up at 191k.

I don't understand why Japan loves GTA5 so much.

Yokai Watch 2's going to be quite the big one next week.
Reposting:
These are the only games in Japanese history that have sold over 1milllion first week that aren't Pokemon, Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, or Monster Hunter (no first week data available for Famicom or Super Famicom):

[GB] Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Monsters 4 - 1,228,599 / 2,210,162 (Dec 7, 2000)
[PS1] Biohazard 3 Last Escape - 1,005,020 / 1,383,282 (Sept 22, 1999)
[PS1] Biohazard 2 - 1,389,733 / 2,154,975 (Jan 29, 1998)
Youkai Watch 2 could be in this!

Everything down except legacy systems. Woe is Japan. Wonder if Yokai Watch sequel can push hardware or whether it will basically just sell to people who already own the system.

Code:
		Pikmin 3		MK8
Week 1 HW	20728			19031
Week 2 HW	14024 (-32%)		12576 (-34%)
Week 3 HW	10937 (-22%)		10366 (-18%)
Week 4 HW	 9432 (-14%)		 8373 (-19%)
Week 5 HW	 9291 (-1.5%)		 9010 (+7.6%)
Week 6 HW	10951* (+18%)		 8020 (-11%)
Week 7 HW	 7024 (-36%)		    ?
*Obon week caused this rise, so it's not really a fair comp.
Superior tracker. This is why you need sustained software releases. And also why talk of baselines is still premature.
idk, it seems like it's slowly finding its way back to ~8k
It's already there in Famitsu. It's friends with the PS4 again.

Its the difinitive western game Japan cant make. Ive speculated that youtube/social media really helped too, as gameplay videos really sell it.

Oh so 2 possible YW titles next week then, that is if YW1 will maintain its selling power this week.
You can remove that "if". YW1 is gonna stay in MC's TOP 20 for quite a while.

Actually, I wouldn't even be surprised if sales actualyl went slightly up next week.

New base level for WiiU seems to be around 10k since MK8. Small victory considering the market.
Too early to say such things.

MK8 seems to have had the same effect as Pikmin 3, and heres what happened with hardware:

21k
14k
11k
9k
9k
11k
7k
6k
5k

Its only been 4 weeks since MK8 has come out.

EDIT: Just saw superior tracker.....its at 8k

I think it has more to do with western games generally becoming more and more popular in Japan. GTA that was faily popular even during PS2 gen has taken advantage of that new market with GTAV.
