Atelier Ryza released on September 26 and Koei Tecmo says that the game had the strongest launch in franchise history with over 150,000 units sold, digitally and physically, in its Japanese debut. [Thanks, @mochi_wsj.]
In addition to having the fastest pace for the 22-year-old franchise with Atelier Ryza, Koei Tecmo also shared that pre-orders outside Japan has also been strong and picking up further, which can be seen as another example of the West embracing more niche titles from Japan.
Atelier Ryza: Ever Darkness & the Scarlet Hideout is now available in Japan for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. The game releases for PS4, Switch, and PC in North America on October 29, 2019 and in Europe on November 1, 2019.
