Atelier Ayesha Sells More Than Totori, Less Than Meruru

Recommended Videos

Last week, Gust released Atelier Ayesha on the PlayStation 3 in Japan, and the game sold 60,548 copies in its first week. Let’s see how that compares to the other Atelier games’ first-week sales on the PlayStation 3:


(2009) Atelier Rorona – 43,243

(2010) Atelier Totori – 53,871

(2011) Atelier Meruru – 82,585


Sales tracker, Media Create, also reports how much pre-orders contributed to the first-week sales of each of the PlayStation 3 Atelier games:


Atelier Rorona – 35.12%

Atelier Totori – 59.90%

Atelier Meruru – 59.90%

Atelier Ayesha – 58.70%


Overall, that puts Ayesha in between Totori and Meruru in terms of sales and just a bit lower in terms of pre-orders, which isn’t bad all. It appears as though Gust have a series they can churn out annually and bank upon for surefire results every year.
