Resident Evil: Revelations Sold 75% Of Its First Shipment In Japan


While Media-Create gave us a very good idea of how Armored Core V sold in Japan, they weren’t as specific in the case of Resident Evil: Revelations or Tales of Innocence R. For those games, we’ll have to turn to ASCII Media Works.


ASCII Media Works report Revelations numbers that are a little higher than Media-Create’s, and they add that the game sold through 75% of its initial shipment in the first week. According to ASCII, Revelations sold 158,012 copies in its first week.


Meanwhile, in the case of Tales of Innocence R, ASCII Media Works say the game sold through 70% of its shipment. According to their numbers, Innocence R sold 53,000 copies.
