Last week saw the release of a game that’s been a long time coming—Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies, the fifth game in the main Ace Attorney series, which brings back a number of the series’ popular characters alongside new ones. Capcom sold 250,216 copies of Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies in the game’s first week on store shelves.
That figure is very well similar to how Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney sold back in 2007. In its first week, Apollo Justice sold 250,186 copies. Considering that there’s been a gap of six years between the two games, Dual Destinies’ sales are rather impressive and indicate that any fans that were lost in the interim have been made up for by new fans.

Also released last week was Dragon’s Crown, Vanillaware’s multiplayer brawler. The game enjoyed a very respectable debut, with 104,359 copies sold on PS3 and another 71,083 copies on PlayStation Vita.
Finally, Nippon Ichi Software released The Witch and the Hundred Knights last week as well, and the game sold close to 50,000 copies. That puts it close to the sales of 2008’s Disgaea 3, which is pretty good, considering the low sales of Nippon Ichi’s other non-Disgaea games.
