Hopefully, Level 5 Shipped More Copies Of Yo-kai Watch 2…


    On July 10th, Level 5 released Yo-kai Watch 2 in Japan. The game was released in two versions—that translate roughly to “Head [of household]” and “Founder”—which sold a combined total of 1,316,707 copies in their first week.


    Japanese sales tracker Media Create reports that the Head version sold through 88.77% of its shipment, while the Founder version sold through 95.53% of its shipment.


    That effectively means both versions of the game were virtually sold out shortly after Yo-kai Watch 2 was released. Hopefully, Level 5 have been able to ship more copies to meet demand, considering that pre-orders alone should have indicated the need to do so.
