Etrian-Odyssey-X-2-788x500

Last week, Japan got several new releases including Etrian Odyssey X, the last 3DS entry for the series along with Pro Yakyuu Famista Evolution, WarioWare Gold, SaGa: Scarlet Grace, and more.

 

At #1 of the week we have Etrian Odyssey X with 71,946 units sold on the Nintendo 3DS. Here’s a look at how it stacks compared to the debuts of previous entries of the series:

  • (2007) Etrian Odyssey – 32,511 [DS]
  • (2008) Etrian Odyssey II – 68,913 [DS]
  • (2010) Etrian Odyssey III – 87,765 [DS]
  • (2012) Etrian Odyssey IV – 95,506 [3DS]
  • (2016) Etrian Odyssey V – 92,518 [3DS]
  • (2018) Etrian Odyssey X – 71,946 [3DS]

 

As you can see, it’s a bit of a drop when you look at it in comparison to the last main entry in Etrian Odyssey V, but it doesn’t mean the series is overall dropping as it would’ve probably seen much higher numbers had it been Etrian Odyssey VI, and perhaps for the Nintendo Switch.

 

  • (2013) Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl – 88,278 [3DS]
  • (2014) Etrian Odyssey Untold II: The Fafnir Knight – 59,531 [3DS]
  • (2018) Etrian Odyssey X – 71,946 [3DS]

 

When you look at it in comparison to the remakes it looks more in place as a side title.

 

Next up at #2 we have Pro Yakyuu Famista Evolution which sold quite well with 42,846 units on the Nintendo Switch. WarioWare Gold followed at #3 with 31,018 units on the Nintendo 3DS.

 

As far as other new titles go, we had the release of SaGa: Scarlet Grace’s latest version with 14,971 units sold on PS4 at #10 and 9,586 units on Switch at #12 to combine for 24,557 units between the two. Friday the 13th: The Game charted at #11 with 10,110 units sold on Ps4. Border Break: Starter Pack sold 8,249 units on PS4 to chart at #13, and lastly, Monster Hunter: World (Best Price!) charted #19 with 4,889 units sold on PS4.

 

We should also note that Splatoon 2 just surpassed 2.5 million in total retail sales in Japan.

 

In hardware sales we saw a big bump for the New Nintendo 2DS LL that sold 9,015 units to top its previous week that sold 5,459 units. This can be attributed to two 3DS titles in the top-3 with Etrian Odyssey X and WarioWare Gold. The PlayStation 4 sold 13,113 units plus an extra 5,889 for the PS4 Pro to combine for 19,002 units sold. The Nintendo Switch was the top-selling hardware of the week with 50,799 units sold, making up about 59.2% of all consoles sold. Going by Media Create’s figures, the Nintendo Switch is currently at 4,753,625 units sold in Japan since its launch in March 3, 2017.
