Koei Tecmo and Gust released Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends & the Secret Fairy last week, and today they offered an update on sales.
The new JRPG shipped 150,000 copies in its first week in Japan, which is remarkable for a series that has always been fairly niche.
The announcement, which came with more beautiful art by Toridamono, included a mention of the fact that shipments beat the debut sales record set by the original Atelier Ryza.
You can find the tweet and the artwork below.
