Following the release of the top-20 chart on Wednesday, Media Create just released its weekly analysis, providing more insight into the ins and outs of the Japanese market between Dec. 10 and Dec. 16.
Total software sales were 1.364 million, which is 78.8% of the previous week. This is due to the inevitable second-week decline in sales for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. On the other hand, hardware us up week-on-week (103.74%) due to Christmas demand.
With almost 151,000 copies sold, God Eater 3 sold about 90% of God Eater Resurrection in 2015 across PS4 and PS Vita (168 000 copies). That being said, Media Create mentions that the series always had a portable nature, and the third numbered chapter came only for PS4, so it can be said that this is a good start for the game.
Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio’s latest game Judgment (known as Judge Eyes in Japan) sold 148,000 copies, which is 66.63% of the initial shipment. According to Media Create the appearance of Takura Kimura in the game created a hop topic, calling the attention of mainstream media for the game’s launch. As a result, it appears that Sega has been successful in attracting those who weren’t originally fans of the Yakuza series.
God Eater 3 will come to the west for PS4 and PC on Feb. 8, 2019, and will get a demo in January.
Judgment will take longer to localize, and will come exclusively for PS4 next summer.
