Dragon Ball Fusions continues its solid sales figures eight weeks into its release on the Nintendo 3DS in Japan, finally dipping over last week’s numbers after a slight jump back up again.
According to the Media Create sales list for the reporting period of 19 September 2016 to 25 September 2016, the game pushed another 6,058 copies, which brings the game’s sales up to 165,696 total copies.
Fusions‘ eighth week sales far exceed last year’s Extreme Butōden (also on the Nintendo 3DS), which pushed 115,545 copies by its own seventh week before falling off again until its tenth week at 124,982 copies. Fusions is also currently trending higher than 2014’s Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission 2, which (according to Famitsu) sold 145,766 copies by its eighth week.
Dragon Ball Fusions, developed by Ganbarion for Bandai Namco, is the latest Dragon Ball franchise video game and is exclusively available on the Nintendo 3DS in Japan. A free update is due this autumn, bringing with it a new “Time-Space Radar stage” plus more online and single-player functionality. The game is scheduled for an international localization, hitting North America in December and Europe in February 2017. Check out Episode #0409 of our podcast for our first impressions with the game.
