Yo-Kai Watch Busters sold 694,000 copies in its first two days on the Japanese market. Media Create reports that the White Dog Squad earned 423,000 of those units while Red Cat Team moved the remaining 271,000 copies. Yo-Kai Watch Busters also became the best-selling game in Japan this year in terms of first week performance (previously Dragon Quest Heroes).

There were 1.159 million pieces of software sold between July 6 and July 12, which was brought about thanks to 3DS titles like Yo-Kai Watch Busters. It’s the first time in roughly 3.5 months that this happened on the Japanese market.

It’s true that Yo-Kai Watch Busters sold 52.67 percent compared to Yo-Kai Watch 2’s debut, which is roughly half. However, there is a difference in the sales period, and Busters isn’t a numbered title and instead a game mode from Yo-Kai Watch 2 that received an independent release. It can be thought that mostly old fans of the series bought Busters.

Media Create also notes that Yo-Kai Watch didn’t do much for 3DS hardware sales, and that strengthens the assumption that mostly existing users bought the game.

This week’s expanded Japanese software sales are as follows:

Media Create has shared a little extra additional information about Fire Emblem Fates’ debut sales in Japan.

As mentioned earlier this week, the game managed to sell over 300,000 units. Birthright sold a bit more out of the two versions, with Media Create reporting that it moved 154,000 copies. On the other hand, Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest sold 107,000 units. The Fire Emblem Fates Special Edition chipped in with another 43,000 copies.

Fire Emblem Fates managed to outdo its predecessor, Fire Emblem: Awakening, in terms of first week sales – 304,000 units vs. 243,000 units. It’s also worth mentioning that lifetime sales of Awakening in Japan are at 492,000 copies sold.

Media Create didn’t provide a sell-through rate for Fire Emblem Fates, but Dengeki has come through with that information. According to the site, visible buzz surrounding the game allowed it to sell through 90 percent of its initial stock.
