Valkyria Revolution met with lukewarm sales in its first week as Gravity Rush 2 debuts at the top

0

Console sales drop again

For the second week in a row all console sales have dropped, but the bigger news may be Valkyria Revolution's relatively low count. Despite the name change, Valkyria Revolution opened up with 56,416 Japanese sales combined for PS4 and PS Vita. For comparison, in their respective first weeks, Valkyria Chronicles sold 77,267, Valkyria Chronicles 2 sold 94,444, and Valkyria Chronicles 3 sold 102,779.  

38k was good enough to land the PS4 version at the number three spot, but combined it is the second most purchased game of the week behind only Gravity Rush 2. When the first game initially went on sale for the Vita, it sold just over 43,000 copies back in 2012, so this is a considerable improvement.
