Yo-Kai Watch 2 Had 814,000 Pre-Orders In Japan As Of Last Week

Recommended Videos

As of last week, Yo-Kai Watch 2 had 814,000 pre-orders from consumers across its two versions in Japan, sales tracker Media Create reported yesterday. The game was released in Japan this past Thursday, July 10th.

 

Media Create say that the initial number of orders was 786,000. Gradually, that figure increased to 814,000 pre-orders. In fact, the number of pre-orders would have grown even faster, had it not been for the fact that the game sold out prior to its release, and retailers had to stop accepting pre-orders.

 

Despite the game being in short supply, pre-order inquiries from consumers continued, and Media Create predict what we already suspected—that Yo-Kai Watch 2 will be the first million-seller in Japan this year.
