    Last week, there were several key releases ranging from major titles such as the top-seller Star Wars Battlefront to the #2 and #3 with the latest in Gust’s Atelier series with Atelier Sophie: Alchemist of the Mysterious Book.

     

    While the previous entry in the series, Atelier Shallie: Alchemists of the Dusk Sea, sold 43,744 copies on its opening week for PS3, keep in mind that Atelier Sophie has been spread across three platforms on PS4, PS3, and Vita for a total of 68,106 for its first week, so it has balanced itself out pretty well as far as sales go.

     

    On the downside of things, Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival did not do well for an Animal Crossing game on its first week at 20,303 units sold, which might make sense considering that it’s not exactly your regular Animal Crossing title.

     

    • (2012) Animal Crossing: New Leaf – 603,064
    • (2015) Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer – 522,556

     

    However, as you can see, Happy Home Designer, which also wasn’t your regular Animal Crossing title, yet it still managed to keep numbers close to the latest main entry in the series for its first week. It’s a given that Wii U title sales aren’t expected to have similar sale numbers to 3DS counterparts, but Nintendo probably isn’t too happy with its results, nonetheless.
