Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 on the Nintendo Switch hit Japanese retailers on Thursday, September 7. The very next day, Bandai Namco Entertainment Japan announced Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 was a hit in Japan and there was a shortage of the physical version of the game. Just how many copies of the game were sold?
According to Japanese data company MediaCreate, 24,045 copies of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 for the Nintendo Switch flew off shelves. The sales report are for the period between September 4th and September 10th, but because Xenoverse 2 was released on the 7th and due to Bandai Namco’s announcement, we assume 24,045 copies sold is just for a day or two of sales, which is phenomenal. Just to note, those sales are just the physical version, it’s unclear how many copies were sold on the Nintendo eShop. When we checked yesterday, we saw Xenoverse 2 was #1 on the best sellers list in the eShop.
When Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 was originally released in Japan back on November 2, 2016, it had sales of 66,035 copies sold on the PS4 over 5 days. Below are the top 10 games in terms of sales from a report that tallied numbers between the period of September 4 to September 10, 2017.
