This Week In Sales: Pachinko And Portable Guilds



Not much of note the week of May 31st – June 6th, as the only two new releases in the top-ten were Fairy Tail: Portable Guild and Hisshou Pachinko Pachi-Slot Kouryaku Series DS Vol. 5: Shinseiki Evangelion, both of which performed relatively poorly compared to recent other new releases.

A quick note for people that read the sales posts: The week after E3, we’ll be publishing these on weekdays, so they’re a little more visible on the site and a little more timely.
