Japanese Charts, Aug 11 -17: Hyrule Warriors launches


Hyrule Warriors launch in Japan last week and debuted with sales of 69,090, it was still piped though by Yo-kai Watch 2, which continues its relentless march for sales with another 118,526 units sold, making for a whopping 2.2 million copies sold. Level 5 sure has a knack for producing hit games.

Also, wouldn't it be interesting to know who the 137 people that bought an Xbox 360 are?

Check out both charts below.

Dat Yo-kai Watch staying power

Queue Kevin showing up to point out that Hyrule Warriors only sold 69.000 on release
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 month ago
I wouldn't actually have taken any notice of it if you hadn't brought it to my attention but looking at it, yes, you're right... that is not a very good debut for a brand new Zelda game.
PrometheusFan 1 month ago
Surely you jest. Anyhoo it's not really a Zelda game, more of a Musuo game
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 month ago
It's both of those things technically, but sales are pretty poor compared to either series when a new game launches. I mean, Musou games alone usually pull in first week sales north of 200k as I recall. It's a very popular genre in Japan. With the Zelda name attached it's actually quite surprising it couldn't even manage 100k even on a console with the install base of the Wii U. I believe Tecmo Koei said they're expecting sales of at least a million for the game, so they're clearly banking on it performing better than any other Musou title they're released in a long time.

I know, I was just throwing that out there
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 month ago
Still the best thing of looking at the Japanese chart is seeing how much consoles the X360 sold
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 month ago
How can Microsoft even slightly think they can be successful in Japan with the Xbone?
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 month ago
They probably don't, but at the same time they probably think they can't not launch there either for... whatever reason. Seems as though they're banking heavily on China instead this time around, which seems an equally futile move really.
PrometheusFan 1 month ago
Yeah, I don't see anyone in China spending that much money on a closed system, not when they have Free to Play games on PC. Dota is massive over there

^erm...... o_O

In return, I'd refer you to an Ancient Anglo-Saxon saw which would apply to most of you, no doubt ;)!

" To the educated, it would be called imparting some knowledge." - Yeah, I've often wondered whether you prefer Japanese or Chinese people, so thanks for finally satisfying my curiousity on that score.

I still say he's a bot.

Good one Kevin I must admit to chuckled
JoeToots 1 month ago
What concern are my posts to you lot? Just jealous I'm clearly more educated than the majority of you on here?! Is that all you lot are currently living for, to post inanities on threads such as ShopTo's? As for your stock 'bot' reply, 'Glo' a) you quite sufficiently send yourself up with that one and b) the Ancient Anglo-Saxon saw more than puts the things in the right perspective ;)! Just glad to see you're not using SWEAR words yet! Thank gawd, there are more interesting gaming sites than this one out there at this rate. 'I must admit to chuckled', why would you have used the past participle of 'to chuckle' there? Again, you quite show yourself up there and, have to admit, that one could quite make me snigger ;)!
Fear Sinséir1612 1 month ago
You have quite a superiority complex you know that
Loli-Nox-Tan 1 month ago
Definitely a bot.

Hatters gunna hate. Fear seriously though are you high off of shrooms or something?
JoeToots 1 month ago
In fact I wrote that wrong sorry give me a minute.
JoeToots 1 month ago
Shrooms to the Saxons are high than Japanese but chinese are very high. I much prefer hating the hatters or else the Vikings will land in japan. I'm educated so the cheese from the milk from the orange pig can be kept for later use.
JoeToots 1 month ago
Leave the hatters alone, let them have their hats.
Gloria 1 month ago
They don't leave enough hats for the rest of us though.

"You have quite a superiority complex you know that" - 'Pretentious' is the word you're looking for I think :/

Fair enough

Wasn't trying to be a smart arse there btw, I just meant that that was the description I'd have used.
