<< How to read and understand sales

 

Last week was rather slow in terms of new releases. It saw the release of a new PreCure game, Fate/Kaleid Liner: Prisma Illya (now infamous for its low Famitsu score), and Imageepoch’s SoniPro. All three games sold below 7,000 copies at launch.

 

Also released last week was the Vita version of Child of Light, which sold close to 3,900 copies in its first week.

 

Of course, taking the #1 spot for another week in a row was Yo-kai Watch 2, which was just a few digits away from breaking the 2 million threshold.

 

The top-20 software sales chart for last week is as follows:
