Though Dragon Ball XENOVERSE is still around the corner for North America and Europe, the latest video game for the Dragon Ball franchise saw its release on consoles in Japan last week.
According to the Media Create sales list for the reporting period of 02 February 2015 to 08 February 2015, the game (released 05 February 2015) pushed 44,221 copies on the PlayStation 3 and another 34,690 copies on the PlayStation 4 (with an unknown amount sold on the Xbox 360 and Xbox One, not uncommon at all for Japan), for at least a combined 78,911 total copies, making it the top selling game of the week.
While it is tough to draw exact parallels with prior games due to the console generation shift (and XENOVERSE being a split-generation, multi-platform release), here is a list of other recent fighting games and their first-week sales in Japan (note that Dragon Ball Z for Kinect and Budokai HD Collection were not released in Japan):
Battle of Z (2014)
Ultimate Blast / Ultimate Tenkaichi (2011)
Dragon Ball Kai: Ultimate Butōden (2011)
Tag VS / Tenkaichi Tag Team (2010)
Raging Blast 2 (2010)
Raging Blast (2009)
Infinite World (2008)
Burst Limit (2008)
