Grand Knights History Did Well For Marvelous Entertainment


Grand Knights History sold 64,630 copies when it released in Japan last week. By itself, that number doesn’t really tell us much of anything. What would be better, would be if we knew how  many copies of the game Marvelous sent to retailers. That would give us an idea of how much Grand Knights History sold relative to their expectations.


Luckily, Japanese sales tracker, Media-Create — whose figures we use in our weekly sales column — have provided some perspective on this front. They reveal that Grand Knights History sold 90.60% of its original shipment, selling out at many stores.
