Yesterday, UK chart information confirmed that Shin Megami Tensei V managed to earn a ninth-place spot in its opening week available on the market. For a JRPG unique to a Nintendo platform in a physical-only UK chart, that is fairly spectacular going, and additional evaluation gives a greater perception into simply how nicely it is carried out.
GamesIndustry.biz’s Christopher Dring has shared some attention-grabbing gross sales comparisons between Atlus’ new sport and former JRPG releases within the UK. He notes that SMTV managed “60% extra gross sales at launch than Bravely Default II, 43% greater than Monster Hunter Tales 2 and 23% greater than Tales of Come up“. As a reminder, all of this information pertains to boxed gross sales solely.
In fact, the previous few years have proven that the UK’s perspective in direction of Nintendo seems to be shifting considerably. For a prolonged interval, PlayStation and Xbox titles dominated the charts, in addition to retailer cabinets, however with the success of Change, it is not unusual to see half of the highest ten being wolfed up by Nintendo as of late.
Maybe that is what’s helped Shin Megami Tensei V to promote so nicely throughout its opening weekend? Or possibly it is simply because the sport’s “a contemporary masterpiece.” Both approach, the long run’s trying somewhat brighter for UK JRPG followers.
