Keeper of sales tracking, Media Create, have begun to release some figures for two eagerly anticipated games for the 3DS. Spiritual successor to Final Fantasy IV, Bravely Default Flying Fairy, has managed to sell through a staggering 141, 529 copies in its first week accounting for 85.68% of the initial shipment.
Another title with much clout behind it coming from three heavyweights, Sega, Capcom and Namco Bandai, Project X Zone, hasn’t gone as well. Media Create has reported that 85,539 copies were shifted which adds up to 57.55% of its shipment. To add salt to the wound, 70% of sales were from pre-orders which actually translates to not many copies selling after the initial rush from fans was over.
This is particularly disappointing for this title coming from such a rich heritage, here’s hoping sales pick up and this won’t deter other developers from teaming up and producing more cross over titles.
