Nintendo announced this morning that Fire Emblem Fates has already topped 300,000 units sold during its launch weekend, making it the fastest-selling Fire Emblem game in the United States.
The 300,000 units sold between all versions during its launch weekend makes it the fastest-selling game from the series, five times as many copies as Fire Emblem Awakening in 2013. In case you’re wondering, Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright sold more, with Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest “close behind.”
Nintendo of America’s executive VP of sales and marketing shared:
“Both fans and critics are falling for Fire Emblem Fates, and the early sales numbers prove the game’s undeniable appeal. This strong momentum for Nintendo 3DS is only the beginning, as many more high-quality exclusive games are set to launch for the hand-held system over the next few months.”
Fire Emblem Fates is currently available for Nintendo 3DS. The game is expected to release sometime in 2016 for Europe.
