Who says the JRPG is dead? Bravely Default debuts with 200k sales
March 13, 2014 | By Christian Nutt




Newsbrief: Square Enix's newest IP, Bravely Default, appears to be a hit with Western fans: The game, which debuted on February 7, shifted over 200,000 units to players in its first three weeks on sale -- that's when you count both physical and digital copies, says Nintendo, which published the title in North America.

The game outperformed the success of last year's surprise hit Fire Emblem Awakening by 10 percent, says Nintendo.

Bravely Default slid in at number 10 in this month's NPD sales chart; Square Enix's other RPG launch, Lightning Returns hit at number 8, though that was across two platforms: Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. According to Nintendo, if you break down sales by individual platforms, Bravely Default on 3DS was the second-best selling SKU of the month overall.
