This Week In Sales: Fire Emblem And Last Ranker

By Ishaan . July 23, 2010 . 8:10pm


Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem for the Nintendo DS led the sales charts following its debut last week. Not so close behind it was Dragon Quest Monsters: Battle Road Victory.


Meanwhile, Konami released another sports title, this time in the form of PowerPros Baseball 2010, on PS3 and PSP. Like World Soccer Winning Eleven 2010 before it, PowerPros’ sales are leading on the PS3, although by a wider margin.


And finally, Last Ranker, too, debuted the same week, coming in at 60,757 units. The top-ten for the week of July 12th – 18th is as follows:


Lw Tw Title Tw. Sales Sys. Publisher
New 01. Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem – Hero of Light and Shadow 136,367 DS Nintendo
New 02. Dragon Quest Monsters: Battle Road Victory 135,783 Wii Square Enix
New 03. PowerPros Baseball 2010 120,199 PS3 Konami
01. 04. Wii Party 112,850 Wii Nintendo
New 05. Last Ranker 60,757 PSP Capcom
New 06. PowerPros Baseball 2010 51,778 PSP Konami
03. 07. Inazuma Eleven 3: Challenge the World! Spark / Bomber 46,014 DS Level 5
02. 08. White Knight Chronicles: Awakening of Light and Darkness 34,285 PS3 Level 5
04. 09. Harvest Moon: Twins’ Village 20,269 DS Marvelous
New 10. Momotaro Railway Tag-Team Match 18,614 PSP Hudson


As you’ll note from looking at the chart, Harvest Moon: Twins’ Village is still sticking around in the top-ten. Will it be lucky enough to last another week? There’s no telling…but the game is at 83,879 units so far. It’ll probably manage to break 100,000 units eventually, which is great for MMV.


And of course, Inazuma Eleven 3 continues to roll along, now at 648,902 units sold to date.

  • “Last” Ranker INDEED.

    OH BURN.

    Nahh, just teasin’. Hope Capcom localizes it and its sales improve a little; impressions haven’t been stellar, but everyone has nonetheless enjoyed it and it might represent what little hope left we have for a new Breath of Fire.

    • but is last, as the LAST MAN STANDING!! so, joke killed xD.And where have you seen these “impressions” O.o, i think its pretty good, kinda slow at the beginning, but it gets so freaking better as it goes on, specially when you get pwned by one (or 2) of the top 10 of Last ranker’s rank xD

      ~61k in Japan is actually not bad for a new portable IP that is presumably not terribly high budget.

  • Woa, fire emblem and dragon quest’s reputation precedes them.
    And Last Rankers seems to do pretty good, even if is a new game with a new battle system, i hope it keeps increasing so capcom can localize it :D

  • Your Fire Emblem number is completely different from your source. What’s going on?

  • holyPaladin

    Yup Ishaan your Fire Emblem number are wrong..
    Because I remember FE and DQ sold like 136k each (from other site)

    If we look at source FE sold 136,367
    DQ sold 135,783 (which is correct)

    • Doh, you’re right. I forgot to change that value from the table I copied in another sales post, haha. Wow, this is like the third time I’ve gotten the #1 units wrong…it’s like they’re jynxed.

  • I have mixed feelings about Last Ranker- had it been in 10th place it would’ve been sad, but kinda funny too.

    Love to see Fire Emblem sell big in Japan. Last I checked it sells better over there than it does here and thats a good thing because that means they’ll keep pumpin em out for the homeland and we have yet to miss an FE since FE7 so chances of them coming over are highly likely. Point is…I want more FE and it looks like Im gonna keep getting them and that makes me =D

  • epy

    Awesome for Fire Emblem! Nintendo loves money and I love Fire Emblem so let’s keep those remakes coming. I’m very interested in Last Ranker getting a localization so I hope it does well in Japan.

      A new Fire Emblem wouldn’t hurt especialy if it’s good as Radiant Dawn (which mean great), I have nothing against remake but Dragon Shadow was boring to me so I’m not too hot for Mystery of the Emblem.
