Japan saw the release of Fire Emblem Warriors last week on Nintendo Switch and New Nintendo 3DS. Sales were not too bad as the title managed to sell 40,000 copies on the Switch & around 20,000 on the New 3DS. According to Dengeki, Fire Emblem Warriors has sold through 50% of Japan’s initial shipment.
It may seem like a slow start, especially seeing as the Fire Emblem series is quite popular in the Japan, though I am sure the numbers will no doubt fair a lot better in the West when it releases in two weeks. On the other hand, Hyrule Warriors on the Wii U sold just under 70,000 units and the 3DS version sold 56,000.
Fire Emblem Warriors debuted in Japan last week. On Switch, the game sold a little over 40,000 copies. The New 3DS version also moved just under 20,000 units. Dengeki further adds that Fire Emblem Warriors sold through 50 percent of its initial shipment.
The one somewhat comparison we have is Hyrule Warriors. On Wii U, the game sold a bit under 70,000 units within its first week. Later on, Hyrule Warriors Legendsfor the New 3DS sold about 56,000 copies, 60% of the initial shipment. To be fair though, The Legend Of Zelda series does have a bigger fanbase.
As far as I am concerned, Hyrule Warriors Legends is my favourite game on the 3DS and it is a game I still play today and now thanks to a Nintendo Everything translation of a Hyrule Warriors Legends interview between Producer Yosuke Hayashi and Nintendo Dream, we can finally know why both Yuga and Ravio were chosen to be the final characters. Below you can find Hayashi’s responses. Continue reading Yosuke Hayashi Spills the Beans on Yuga & Ravio (Hyrule Warriors Legends)
