The [email protected]: One For All Sold Out At Launch


Last week, Bandai Namco released The [email protected]: One For All in Japan, and the game sold 83,000 copies in its first week. Japanese sales tracker Media Create reports that the game sold out at several stores following its launch.


The [email protected]: One For All sold through 92.56% of its shipment, outdoing sales of its predecessor, The [email protected] 2 for PS3, which sold 66,000 copies at launch.


Why the high sell-through rate? Some Japanese retailers say it’s because of the first-print bonus Namco announced—idol codes for “The [email protected] Cinderella Girls” and “The [email protected] Million Live!”.
