Snack World

Level-5 has provided an official update regarding the status of Snack World in the west. The franchise will debut in the west next year, the company announced today.

Here’s the official blurb from Level-5:

The Snack World: Trejarers Gold debuted in Japan on April 12. Through April 15, the game sold about 35,000 copies. Dengeki further reports that it sold through 65% of its initial shipment.

Originally, The Snack World originally appeared on 3DS last year. It managed to sell somewhere around 100,000 copies in its first week with a 55% sell-through rate.

Given that the Switch release is an enhanced version that’s coming out a year later, The Snack World: Trejarers Gold had a pretty good debut. Sales may also receive a bump during Golden Week.


The Snack World: Trejarers Gold isn’t just a simple port of the 3DS version. Level-5 has added in quite a few new features and elements that improve on the original game.

In an article on 4Gamer, further information is shared regarding the changes. We’ve rounded up the details below, courtesy of Siliconera.
