Fire Emblem: Awakening exceeds 180,000 sales in February

0

Yep, that'll do

Fire Emblem: Awakening didn't crack February's monthly NPD chart, but that doesn't mean the 3DS title hasn't been a roaring success. In fact, Nintendo has revealed the strategy role-paying game put up "the best first month sales in franchise history" following its release on February 4.

Speaking to VentureBeat, Nintendo boasted that Fire Emblem: Awakening has sold more than 180,000 units to date, including 63,000 digital sales. To put that number into context, Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon, the previous entry in the series, has sold around 250,000 copies over the past five years. Yeah, I'd say Awakening is doing just fine.

One of the finest titles to grace the 3DS library thus far, it's nice to know that Fire Emblem: Awakening is doing well for Nintendo. In a day and age where JRPGs are generally believed to be an obsolete, niche, or dying genre, seeing games like this and The Last Story exceed expectations is quite heartwarming for those of us that enjoy them.
