Shin Megami Tensei IV Final sold just over 96,000 copies in its first week in Japan, as reported by Media Create a few days ago. The sales tracker has since relayed additional information about the game’s performance.

According to Media Create’s data, Shin Megami Tensei IV Final sold through 73.28 percent of its initial shipment. On the other hand, the first Shin Megami Tensei IV sold 189,000 copies in its first week with a sell-through rate of 80.14 percent. That means sales were halved with Final, and the consumption rate was a bit lower. This new 3DS entry also saw about half as many few pre-orders – 56,000 units compared to the original’s 98,000 copies. Overall, Media Create points to an assumption that a percentage of series fans who bought the prequel have left the scene.
