    Fate/Extra wasn’t a huge breakout hit, but it didn’t do terribly either. The Imageepoch-developed RPG based on Type-Moon’s popular franchise debuted at the #2 spot in last week’s sales rankings.

     

    While Extra couldn’t crash Nintendo’s Wii Party — going strong at #1 in its third week at retail — the 72,000 units it moved is very respectable, especially for Marvelous Entertainment. For comparison, just two weeks prior, MMV published Harvest Moon: Twins’ Village — one of their better known franchises — which debuted at 63,610 units.

     

    The only other new release to debut in the top-ten for the week of July 19th – 25th was Katekyoo Hitman Reborn! DS Flame Rumble XX. Rankings were as follows:

    Amidst last week’s notable underperformers were poor Lost in Shadow on Wii (#39) and Densha de Go! Tokubetsu-hen: Fukkatsu Shouwa no Yamatesen on DS (#30). Blur, published by Square Enix in Japan, debuted at the very bottom, at #50.

     

    Not much luckier was Class of Heroes 2G (PS3), which debuted at #23 despite receiving a price-drop even before release. Then again, 2G is a port of a PSP game.
