Naruto Storm Revolution: Over 40K Copies Sold in 4 Days

Naruto Storm Revolution is finally available and ninja are gathering worldwide to test their might against one another! In Japan alone, over 40K ninjas are battling it out. Well, to be more precise, over 40K copies have been sold in the first four days the game was on the market. The sales figures come from the Japanese analytics company MediaCreate who closeley monitors the numbers in the Land of the Rising Sun. Naruto Storm Revolution was released September 11, 2014 in Japan, while the reporting period for figures was between September 8, 2014 and September 14, 2014.

It’s worth noting sales numbers are only for the PS3 version as the 360 version did not make the top 20 reported by MediaCreate. Anyways, so you’re wondering, how did Naruto Storm Revolution do in comparison to all the other Storm games? As much as we love the game, we hate to say the sales figures put it at the worst! Storm 3 sold more than double Revolution in its first four days on the Japanese market and even the first Storm had higher numbers.

How has Naruto Storm Revolution done in North America and Europe?
