YW 3 finally reaching that million copies sold. Still hundreds of thousands of copies on shelves though.

Kirby holding nicely, should end up with a more respectable number than what I expected after the fairly mediocre start.

I can't believe the Mario and Sonic games still sell somewhat decent numbers.

Pokemon Sun/Moon is going to be huuuge.

Ratchet and Clank doing meh but then again it's been a long time since a western originated platformer franchise put up decent numbers in Japan.

How is EOV tracking compared to EOIV? Has it bucked the 3DS decline curse this year?
07./02. [3DS] Etrian Odyssey IV: Denshou no Kyojin <RPG> (Atlus) {2012.07.05} (¥6.279) - 14.221 / 111.363 (-85%)

10./03. [3DS] Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millenium Girl <RPG> (Atlus) {2013.06.27} (¥6.279) - 12.765 / 101.044 (-86%)

19./03. [3DS] Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Knight of Fafnir <RPG> (Atlus) {2014.11.27} (¥6.458) - 9.456 / 68.986 (-84%)

06./01. [3DS] Etrian Odyssey V: The End of the Long Myth # <RPG> (Atlus) {2016.08.04} (¥6.480) - 12.522 / 105.040 (-86%)

Not really, unless we're counting the Untold games. Digital will be a factor though.

It's weird as Sochi did terribly in Japan (like 39k LTD on Wii U IIRC), yet even on Wii U Rio has done a lot better.
Summer games are bigger and more popular and there are more medals coming from more popular sportsmen/sportswomen ?

Medal table for Sochi (Japan is 17th with 8 medals and only one being Gold)
Medal table for Rio (Japan is 10th, 29 medals, 7 being Gold and the olympics are still not over)

Summer games are during a less charged period?
Summer games are during a bigger holiday period?
Summer is always better? :p

Oh and like many I'm really happy to see Kirby doing great. The game is really good.

You say not really but the sales here are incredibly consistent? Maybe we have different definitions of decline?

Yeah, I worried for a minute when Untold 2 bombed, but each mainline entry has seen a small level of growth over the previous entry. I want EOV to continue that.
I think unless they drastically change the formula, what we are looking at now is the ceiling for the series. It's not a "hidden gem" anymore. People who would buy it probably have heard about it.

Sorry, I just read the "decline curse" part of your post and went with that. It's a decline in physical sales (and on par with Untold 1 pretty much) but compared to the other performances we've seen this year, it's a much more positive thing I agree.

EU gon have to carry Ratchet with them legs after this. I wonder if there ever was any potential for it in Japan.

Tales and Persona soon, PS4 rise back to beast mode. I just wish the NX reveal event is announced soon. The question is if it will be aimed for Western or Japanese market more (you'd think JP since it is a portable first and foremost).

We always want the games we love to sell more, but note that this is a stronger result compared to Celceta. Excellent hold also, and the game was #2 last week and this week again on the PS Store (thanks Ôkami for putting those here, by the way !)

It should sell better though, it's a numbered sequel while Celceta was a remake.

Launch aligned VIII is selling better than Seven. That's despite VIII being multi-plat vs. single SKU Seven.
That's encouraging given PSP was also a stronger platform in general. VIII seems like it's had better legs than usual.
Ys Seven - 33,349 / 70,280
Ys Seven (Budget price) - 1,520 / 15,432

Ys Celceta - 42,146 / 67,323
Ys Celceta (Budget price) - 656 / 12,719

Ys VIII - 43,753 / 69,878

I'm not sure this argument holds any weight.
