This Week In Sales: Fire Emblem And Last Ranker



Fire Emblem: New Mystery of the Emblem for the Nintendo DS led the sales charts following its debut last week. Not so close behind it was Dragon Quest Monsters: Battle Road Victory.


Meanwhile, Konami released another sports title, this time in the form of PowerPros Baseball 2010, on PS3 and PSP. Like World Soccer Winning Eleven 2010 before it, PowerPros’ sales are leading on the PS3, although by a wider margin.


And finally, Last Ranker, too, debuted the same week, coming in at 60,757 units. The top-ten for the week of July 12th – 18th is as follows:

As you’ll note from looking at the chart, Harvest Moon: Twins’ Village is still sticking around in the top-ten. Will it be lucky enough to last another week? There’s no telling…but the game is at 83,879 units so far. It’ll probably manage to break 100,000 units eventually, which is great for MMV.


And of course, Inazuma Eleven 3 continues to roll along, now at 648,902 units sold to date.
