I was wondering why Fire Emblem sales seemed low on the weekly Japanese charts. Looks like a ton of Fire Emblem fans have gone digital.
The vouchers might have just saved the game in Japan tbh. 200k+ In about lesd than 1 week is really good. It most likely around 350k now.
Though it's still behind Awakening/Fates first weeks. Fire Emblem Awakening did 242k FW. Awakening was also launched on a smaller install base of 5.76m in Japan, while the Switch currently has an install base of 8.7m in Japan.
Though Three Houses will do better in the west IMO. So global sales will be above Awakening. Perhaps it could have stronger legs than Awakening in Japan and win there too, but that's less likely.
I feel like we're seeing a few franchises start to gain ground in the West while at the same time declining in Japan. Monster Hunter, Pokemon, I think FE too.Last edited by Barkley - on 09 September 2019
