The sales numbers for Naruto Storm 4 in it’s first week at Japanese retailers are in! Japanese data gathering and analysis company, Media Create, reports 64,446 copies of the game were sold on the PlayStation 4! Those numbers are actually four days worth only as the game made its debut on Thursday, February 4, while the statistics reporting period is February 1, 2016 to February 7, 2016. Considering 80,000 copies of the game were shipped, that’s a solid 80.6% of inventory sold!
We aren’t sure how many copies were sold in America and Europe (although shipment totals were very high), but we did check our local GameStop who said their stock of the game was sold out and they were due for a new shipment.
In terms of rank for the week in Japan, it was the highest selling game of the week! Take a look at the top ten games by sales for the period between February 1, 2016 to February 7, 2016.
