MangaGamer’s Go Go Nippon Has Sold Nearly 10,000 Copies

MangaGamer’s Go Go Nippon! is up for download on Steam today for $9.95. Some of our readers may remember this as the game where you play as a character visiting Japan for the first time, and being shown around by a pair of twins.

 

Meanwhile, Overdrive president Hiroshi Takeuchi, who was involved with the game, posted a message on his Facebook page, commenting upon its Steam release and his desire to create an updated version of Go Go Nippon!, should the developer be able to gather the necessary funds.

 

“[The game] was put on [discount sale] for about $5, but I’m really surprised because I hear it might hit 10,000 units sold soon, at the rate it’s selling,” Takeuchi wrote.

 

“The PC game market abroad is impressive, but seeing all these reactions also made me think I’d love to update a lot of its aspects and create a version 2 for sale, so could someone please fund it? lol”

 

Takeuchi humorously added: “It doesn’t have to be that much money, lol.”

 

At 10,000 copies sold, Go Go Nippon has outsold a number of MangaGamer’s other titles. While the profit margin on the game is lower than some of the company’s bigger titles, like Koihime Musou, we have it on good authority that in terms of sheer numbers, Go Go Nippon is among MangaGamer’s highest-selling games.
