It’s not dead yet…!
Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission completely fell off the sales charts last week, but the Japanese Nintendo 3DS-only portable-port of the on-going arcade game crawled its way back up onto the Famitsu sales chart for its ninth week (the period of 22 April 2013 to 28 April 2013) with another 8,834 copies sold.
The game is still completely gone from the Media Create sales list, but comparing its and the Famitsu numbers puts the game in the ballpark of 170,000 total copies sold at this point. The jump from approximately 2,300 copies the previous week to almost 9,000 copies this past week is curious, and begs the question of how well the game could be doing were it actually for sale digitally on Nintendo’s eShop.
Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission for the Japanese Nintendo 3DS is available for purchase at CDJapan and Play-Asia. As previously noted, however, the Nintendo 3DS is region-locked and will require a Japanese system to play. There is currently no word on an international release of the game.
