Xenoblade Chronicles 2 sold through 70% of its initial shipment in Japan
Media Create reported debut sales for Xenoblade Chronicles 2 in Japan a few days ago. From December 1 to December 3, the game sold just under 100,000 copies. We have some additional news about how the game did.
Dengeki points out how the first Xenoblade sold 71,000 units in its first week before going on to move 149,000 copies in total. Xenoblade Chronicles X, released on Wii U, had debut sales of 86,000 copies and 130,000 units total.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 just missed out on selling 100,000 copies, but it did have the series’ highest debut thus far. Dengeki also believes that more sales can be expected, especially since the RPG will be getting continued content through the Expansion Pass.
We also have one other bit of news. According to Dengeki, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 sold through 70% of its initial shipment. That tells us that Nintendo shipped the appropriate amount of copies, and Switch owners were buying the game a fair amount.
