Ace survives the heatwave, and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies kicks ass

Good numbers for Vita too

Dragon Crown is priced obnoxiously high even by Japan standards. How does the sales compare to past Vanillaware results?

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

Was Pheonix Wright sold on a cloudy day and/or the temperature was cool that day?

Might explain it's good sales.

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.

[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.
Especially considering how awful I hear the game is. Lol.
 

ULTROS!

People seem to like me because I am polite and I am rarely late. I like to eat ice cream and I really enjoy a nice pair of slacks.

Man, Vanillaware is killing it on PS3/PSV.

I wonder if they have plans porting Grand Knights History or Odin Sphere on Vita.

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!

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.
