Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir Escapes The Sales Curse


Last week saw the release of Tecmo and Nintendo’s Fatal Frame spin-off, Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir in Japan. The game ranked #7 on the software sales chart for the week, and sold 16,351 copies.


That sounds pretty terrible, doesn’t it?


It turns out, it isn’t. Media-Create say that’s 74.24% of the game’s shipment, which means that most of it sold out. It looks like Nintendo’s estimates were more or less on the mark.


Non-Japanese players will get to play the game, too; Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir is the game’s English title. Nintendo of America confirmed this week that they’ll be releasing the game in April.
