Fate/Extra CCC Sells Through 81% Of Shipment

By Ishaan . April 6, 2013 . 1:30pm

Fate/Extra CCC was released in Japan last week, and sold 72,883 copies at launch. Sales tracker Media Create report that this was 81.3% of the game’s initial shipment.

 

Fate/Extra CCC sold nearly identically to its predecessor, the original Fate/Extra, released in 2010. That game sold 72,170 copies in week 1, and Media Create say that it sold through 84.95% of its shipment at launch.

 

The assumption is that Fate/Extra CCC managed to draw in fans that played Fate/Extra, despite its numerous delays.

    That’s nice.
    Localization maybe?

      I’m going to keep linking this every time someone says ‘localize’.

      • M’iau M’iaut

        Linking once is enough. Thanks.

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/xxHiryuuxx Tohsaka

          Sorry, but it’s about the same as saying ‘localize’ is enough thanks. That’s the whole point of my doing this, with respect.

          • M’iau M’iaut

            If someone was asking twenty times for a localization in the same thread, my reaction would be the same. Individual folks are able to make their own thoughts known here just as you have. Thanks.

          • Zenthos

            People can say that word whenever they like, as long as its not the same point applied with every message they make. Each message they use “localize” in is another topic in itself. You otherwise, repeatingly spamming a link to people more than once, with no change with each reply that does not give people a different perspective, is in fact, enough.

  • Marion obee

    Type-Moon is one of the most successful gaming (and eroge lol) companies, they have a solid otaku fanbase, and most of their products sell well, i don’t think it’s suprising.

    • MXC

      Though not too well known for the eroge part. I recall a friend saying that Kinoko Nasu(the writer) couldn’t write an erotica scene to save his life.

      • Marion obee

        Fate/Stay night is one of their most popular Eroges, and it has many “erotica scenes”, it’s just that their not the focus as opposed to 70% of the eroges, there is a possibility that someone else wrote the ero scenes.
        i mean ffs, this game isn’t even rated 18 and it has quite a bit of “that”.

        • LynxAmali

          Actually, its the Japanese equivalent of an M. It got the same rating as Queens Gate Spiral Chaos; CERO D. PS!: Nasu wrote the entirety of Fate. Type-Moon at the time was pretty small if I remember right. Pretty sure it was slightly bigger than when Tsukihime came out though.

          • Marion obee

            Yeah, Tsukihime came out before Fate/Stay night, Fate was what boosted their popularity significantly. The Tsukihime Remake will probably do so aswell.

        • ShadowDivz

          I just recently started playing Fate/Stay night. Are there alot of H-scenes?

          And if the sex scenes are not the focus i don’t think you should be calling it an eroge. Wouldn’t it be more accurate to call it a visual novel?

          • Marion obee

            Well, an average 30 hours eroge has 30% sex scenes and the rest is story, for Fate/stay night i’d say about 15/20% sex scenes and the rest story. It is a Visual novel, with sex scenes, therefore it’s an eroge.

          • ShadowDivz

            I thought/only refer to something as an eroge when the sex scenes are the focus.
            I mean, you wouldn’t call a romantic novel with a sex scene or two an erotic novel would you?(the latter’s purpose is to stimulate while a romantic novel is to “tug on your heart strings”)

          • MrSirFeatherFang

            You would think that, right? There are some manga that are pretty much all about sex (I guess Aki-Sora for example) but since it doesn’t show any genitalia it “technically” isn’t. (actually bad example, but moving on)
            Anyways, including what @google-14d2e9cf2ee0d903fd570e92b200ed28:disqus has said, if you look at the CG for FSN, you can tell they did do some work in the sex scenes. They don’t show you one or a few poses of them having sex, they show the characters having sex. (different poses and positions, multiple CGs for the sex alone). They also show genitalia, so that’s definitely gotta be censored and H/18+ material definitely.

          • ShadowDivz

            As i said i havn’t gotten far. But if they did some work on the sex scenes (not like “here’s a sex scene of saber! moving on.”)
            Then i will agree it is an eroge. Always nice to argue with someone without resorting to name calling.
            Although it appears again, i have been bested. *falls to the ground*

        I’m pretty sure there an interview somewhere in the ‘net tht says its Takeuchi the one who gives Nasu idea/points/lines to write the sex scenes.

  • Natat

    Well that’s pretty solid, good for them! I’m still hopeful for a localization, we can only hope Aksys gives us a pleasant surprise.

  • Zenthos

    Drat, im sure myself and many others could have boost those sales if it was localized. Fate Extra CCC is missing out on us.

  • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

    Cool, hopefully this means other regions will be getting it. On a side note my Virgin White box is looking sweet on my shelf right now.

    • personablaze

      I’m so jelly of you..My wallet wouldn’t let me buy it xD

      Hope we get a release here in the west,Day one buy for me ^^

      • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

        My wallet was hesitant at first as well =P
        Yeah, I hope it gets localized so I can actually understand and play the game lol

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    I really love how Fate/Extra series have been keep selling nicely in line of their expectation.^_^ Considering how F/Zero have also increase the fanbase, i can see this game reaching 100+k in future.^_^

    “The assumption is that Fate/Extra CCC managed to draw in fans that played Fate/Extra, despite its numerous delays.”

    Rather than Extra drawing the fans, i would said the power of Eros draw many fans into buying this game lol.^_^(There is just too many ehhhmm moment in this game lol.)

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

      All praise the Great Mushroom for the eros & girl passions XD

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        You mean……..SHINING MUSHROOM!!!!^_^

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dylan-Ng/100000854638739 Dylan Ng

    Glad to see Nasu last Fate/ is going off with a bang :D Now I want it to be localized (Aksyyysssss) Jinako & Karna plz.

    • zazza345

      Despite trying to be “separated” from the original game, it’s certainly way more effective if you’ve played the first game, since you’ll surely get the story more than a newcomer. That may or may not hamper localization planning, if ever happens, IMO.

  • Raltrios

    Hopefully they can push out one more localized PSP game before the system dies. I really want to use Castah again, along with Achah, Seibah, and GIRUGAMESH. But mostly Castah.

    • ShadowDivz

      God, just say caster like a normal person.
      or かすた

      • Raltrios

        Caster is arguably the cutest character in the game, and therefore must be referred to in an adorable fashion. So I (in all my powerlessness) have decreed!
        …I could just call her my waifu, but even I won’t subject the readers to that unless I see others doing so. I consider myself a reasonable man, after all.

        • ShadowDivz

          *pulls out muramasa*
          Sir, while i will agree that Caster is immensly cute*nods*
          I cannot let you claim her as your waifu.
          …..because she’s MY waifu! >=)

          • xXDGFXx

            No! She is Saber’s Waifu!

          • Oscar Alberto Abrego Suarez

            Nope she is my Waifu, a duel at the sunset for her hand!

          • Raltrios

            Heh, I’d like to see you try ripping her out of my game disc with a sword :P

  • Neppygear

    Come on, Aksys. You’ve been releasing otome games, of all things, left and right. You can do this for us, too, right? ;_;

  • http://twitter.com/CZPhoenix821 Phoenix

    Selling over 80% of their initial shipment should be proof enough for the game to warrant localization.

    • MXC

      Um unfortunately think about a certain PS Vita that had a 93.37% sell-through but most likely won’t be brought over. Still hoping for that one but this one is more likely since the first one made it over. BRING IT AKSYS!

  • Tsuna__

    I wish that the in-game illustration were made by Takeuchi Takashi…i really don’t like Arco Wada “loli” face style with big eyes…
