This Week In Sales: Another Century’s Episode: R



Namco Bandai are probably pleased with the debut of Another Century’s Episode: R, which topped the sales charts during the week of its release in Japan.


Coming in at 219,849 units, the game’s closest competition was Wii Party, which continued to hold up well weeks after its release, at 68,853 units. Sengoku Basara 3’s performance, too, continues to impress as the game consistently attracts more of an audience each week.


Compile Heart’s Neptune, unfortunately, did not fare as well.


The top-ten chart for the week of August 16th to 22nd is as follows:
