Good thing Nintendo didn’t kill it
Fire Emblem Fates was far and away the week’s best-seller, moving a combined 303,666 copies across all versions of the game. For comparison’s sake, Fire Emblem: Awakening sold 242,600 units when it debuted atop the country’s weekly software charts in April 2012.
Maybe it was a good thing Nintendo decided against cancelling the series, after all.
Meanwhile, Persona 4: Dancing All Night trailed a distant second, belting out 94,036 sales in total. The rhythm game’s numbers are roughly in line with fellow spin-off Persona 4 Arena Ultimax first week sales, 89,468, though still well short of mainline entries in the series and Persona Q, 186,856.
At any rate, these games can’t arrive in the West soon enough!
