Dragon Ball Fusions continues to push new copies to players a full three months into its release on the Nintendo 3DS in Japan.
Though the game has fallen off the Media Create sales list, according to the Famitsu sales list for the reporting period of 17 October 2016 to 23 October 2016, the game pushed another 2,382 copies, which brings the game’s sales up to 164,309 total copies. This number trends lower than Media Create‘s reporting, which pegged the game at 177,592 total copies last week (while Famitsu‘s own reporting pegged the game at 161,927 total copies at that same point in time).
Fusions‘ twelve week sales far exceed last year’s Extreme Butōden (also on the Nintendo 3DS), which fell off the sales chart after ten weeks with a confirmed 124,982 copies sold by that point. Fusions is also currently trending higher than 2014’s Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission 2, which (according to Famitsu) sold 152,076 copies by its own tenth week, after which point it, too, fell off the sales charts.
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 second major update is due next month, bringing with it new playable characters and fusions. 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.
