Killer is Dead launches to tepid sales in Japan

0

Debuts at number five with 17,709 units sold on PS3

Mainstream success has largely eluded Grasshopper Manufacture. Despite giving birth to beloved properties like No More Heroes, the studio has had trouble garnering much of an audience outside of a devout cult following all too eager to lavish praise on Suda 51 and his eccentric adventures.

Grasshopper's latest effort seems likely to follow in the footsteps of its forebears. Killer is Dead recently launched to lackluster sales in Japan. According to data obtained by market research firm Media Create, the new action game arrived at number five, selling just 17,709 copies on PlayStation 3 with the Xbox 360 version failing to break the top twenty.

While those numbers aren't impressive, the title did fare better in its opening week than many of Suda 51's previous efforts, outpacing Killer7, No More Heroes, No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle, and Shadows of the Damned. The studio's most successful launches in Japan belong to No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise and Lollipop Chainsaw, which sold 30,916 and 67,859 units in their respective debuts.
