The latest issue of Famitsu has shared a listing of the top 30 best-selling games in Japan for the month of March 2017. You can check out the full results below.

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia launched in Japan on April 20. During its first four days on the market, it sold about 132,000 copies. Media Create and Dengeki now have more information about the game’s performance.

Media Create points out that Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia sold less than half of Fates (304,000 from Birthright, Conquest, and the Special Edition combined), and sales are still not enough if compared to individual Fates SKUs. Therefore, Echoes is thought to be unable to include many of the new users coming from Fire Emblem Fates and Fire Emblem Heroes. However, when compared as a remake, New Mystery of the Emblem which came out for DS in July 2010 sold 136,000 copies in its first week, so it’s able to maintain the veteran fanbase.

As for Dengeki, the site says Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia sold through 80 percent of its initial shipment. The site says the title managed to cut through a favorable start.

As was the case with Nintendo, Capcom reported its latest financial results today for the fiscal year ending in March. The company’s digital contents business experienced net sales of 58,704 million yen, up 11.7 percent year-over-year. On the other hand, operating income dropped 8.8 percent from last fiscal year, at 11,096 million yen. Net sales for Capcom’s entire business were 87,170 million yen for an increase of 13.2 percent year-over-year.

Capcom noted that Monster Hunter XX, which just shipped in Japan last month, “is off to a promising start”. Monster Hunter Generations (known as Monster Hunter X in Japan) also “achieved solid sales overseas”. The one disappointment in the series was the RPG Monster Hunter Stories – Capcom says it “underperformed.”
