    I guess we won’t be getting Zillions Of Enemy X in the west…

  • usagi_san

    *looks at list* SMT IV sells almost 200k… not surprised. *sips tea and looks further down the list* *spits out tea* Only 5k? I thought the game (Zillions x Enemy X) sounded interesting

    • almostautumn

      Same here. And didn’t it score well with Fami, like a 32?

      Just wasn’t the right week to launch the game, I guess, what with those two of the top-3 titles also being PS3 games.

      • usagi_san

        Looking at the list, you’re right. Just have to wait for next week to see how well it fares then.

  • uhawww

    Wii U, man, we need to talk.

  • MrKappa

    SMT, Kamen Rider and Resident Evil all doing as expected. Can’t wait for SMT though.

  • Locksus

    I’m glad the 3DS is doing so well. Can’t wait to get one soon.
    I’m also fairly positive that the Wii U’s sales will pick up when it gets a few games later this year.
    3DS was pretty much in the same position 2 years ago, but look at it now. Topping the charts every week in Japan.

  • new_tradition

    Whoa, major difference in sales between consoles when it comes to RE:Revelations O_o

  • Adol Christin

    I thought SMTIV would sell a lot more. As usual, nothing can touch the 3DS.

  • adhesive

    Even Valhalla Knights 3 sells that well in Japan? Just goes to show you how obsessed the Japanese are with Monster Hunter games.

  • Zackasaur

    I actually think the most -interesting- thing here is that Terraria did pretty well!

    The rest of the list meets expectations.

  • Chestnut Bowl

    What the hell is Terraria doing in the top 10? GET OUT OF THERE!

  • Eclipse

    Hell yes! SMT IV at #1 where it belongs <3

  • HeatPhoenix

    Terraria! Well done!

  • Kurisu Makise

    WiiU Revelations barely outselling 360 Revelations…not good. Hmm, I was hoping SMTIV would debut just a little higher than this, like 200k range but it’ll have some legs no doubt. PS3 and PSV boosting at equal times now, promising…

  • FaithlessMr

    Hey everyone. I was originally going to reply to a single comment, but then I saw others said the same thing, so I thought I should go ahead and just post it on a single, new post anyway.

    SMT IV did actually pretty well. It’s now one of Atlus best debut-selling games in history, barely beaten by Persona 4 which debuted in Japan back in 2008 selling just a few more copies than SMT IV did (as reported by Siliconera).

    So we really should put things into a very specific context/mindset and see what the numbers stand for; This is not a Dragon Quest, a Final Fantasy, a Pokémon or a Mario game. It’s SMT and it’s already breaking records :D

    So, hooray and hope it keeps it’s momentum going!

    • Zero

      Nice to see you posting again. =)

      I was starting to get a bit worried about you. Welcome back. =)

      I’ve got my copy of SMT IV pre-ordered and I’m just waiting for the release date now. ^^

    • PrinceHeir

      finally your back :D
