Octopath Traveler sold through 90% of its initial shipment in Japan
As we know, Octopath Traveler is supply-constrained in Japan after selling out. Square Enix issued an apology last weekend, and advised Switch owners to consider the game’s digital version on the eShop for the time being.
Given Octopath Traveler’s scarcity, it’s unsurprising to see that almost all of the first round of copies have been sold. Dengeki reports that the title sold through 90% of its initial shipment.
During a three-day period, Octopath Traveler sold 110,000 units. With digital copies, perhaps that number could be closer to 150,000.
