Media Create reported this week that Kirby: Planet Robobot sold 145,000 copies in its first week in Japan. That’s based on sales gathered between April 28 and May 1.

Dengeki now offers further insight into Kirby: Planet Robobot’s performance. According to the site, it sold through 60 percent of its initial shipment (Dengeki puts first week sales at 129,000 units by the way). The last Kirby game, Triple Deluxe, sold 219,000 in its first week before going on to sell 734,000 units. This may make it seem that Planet Robobot is starting slowly, but since Kirby has an expectation more in line of an evergreen title, more sales can probably be expected for a long time to come.
