<< How to read and understand sales

 

Last week saw the release of Bayonetta 2 in Japan, and the game—published by Nintendo, who also funded its development—sold  38,828 copies. That’s a far lower opening than the first Bayonetta, which was released back in 2009.

 

The original Bayonetta sold 135,242 copies on PlayStation 3 and 64,325 copies on Xbox 360 in its opening week in Japan. In comparison, Bayonetta 2 hasn’t done nearly as well.

 

The rest of the software sales chart should look familiar to anyone that watches this column regularly. Super Smash Bros. on 3DS had a strong second week, Yo-kai Watch 2 is trucking along as usual, and despite a range of problems with the game, unsuspecting buyers are still picking up Dragon Quest X on 3DS.
