Good sales at the top. Dragon's Crown should have no issues selling over 200k, which is about what Odin Sphere did.

As for our friends at Level-5... they don't see that lucky. Another overshipped re-release.

Great week for Japanese gamers - AA5 did quite well and DC proves that there is a great fanbase on Vita for creative niche titles

My Gaijin heart feels warm

Two copies sold? That's not a bomb guys, stop trolling!!!

[PS3] The Witch and the Hundred Knights # <RPG> (Nippon Ichi Software) {2013.07.25} (¥7.140) - 49.209 / NEW

Finally a non-Disgaea Nippon Ichi game that doesn't bomb. In fact, its sales are quite good.

dc did really well combined. they'll probably make that budget back with ease.

ace attorney 5 though. holy shit.

witch did okay. maybe a 70k-80k lifetime sort of thing.

pikmin 3 dropped slightly below the 15k i was expecting, but nothing too steep. i think this would be the kind of game to stick around for a little while if there were other games to boost hardware on a regular basis.

mario & luigi 4 bombed though.
 
#35
Well every new release in the top 10 (outside of Fantasy Life re-release) did well for itself.



It didn't bomb. It sold through 60-80% of its shipment and Lego games aren't big in Japan.
Ok! Numbers just seemed pretty low for a debut title. I take it back.

Glad to see Ace Attorney doing well!
 
#38
Only 56% drop in 2nd week sales for Mario & Luigi? That seems really good for an RPG. The "hardcore" RPGs like Persona, Tales etc. usually drop by 80% or more. Maybe that heat wave was stopping people from buying it after all!

Nothing makes me happier in a Media Create thread than to see Level-5 continue to struggle to find even a fraction of the success they did in their glory days. Suck it Hino. Try harder! :p

Pretty amazing Dragon's Crown numbers, and also really great ratio between PS3 and Vita. Not sure how digital works out for Japan, but assuming it's more of a thing when talking handhelds, the ratio between PS3:Vita might be even closer.

Also, can't not notice this:

19./14. [PSP] Dangan-Ronpa (PSP the Best) # <ADV> (Spike) {2011.11.23} (¥2.940) - 7.507 / 105.158 (+16%)
Clearly the new Animal Crossing! (lol). The terrible anime adaptation must be helping out quite a bit.

[NDS] Phoenix Wright 4 (Capcom) - 250,186 / NEW (NDS: 16M)
[3DS] Phoenix Wright 5 (Capcom) - 250,216 / NEW (3DS: 12M)

No need for casuals. I hope it crosses 500k!

DC sold well, but I was expecting more, like 150k for PS3 and 100k for PSV.

Hm.
Are those 3DS numbers exceptionally high or are all the others exceptionally low?

I think the Vita slowly becomes a healthy plattform in japan, tho.
When are FF X/-2 HD and GodEater2 coming out.
