Didn’t expect that EO number at all. Warioware had a nice showing too. Now my desire for a NSW Warioware burns even brighter.

There's really no hope left for the 3DS in Japan. It will slowly bleed out and the holidays won't have any impact.

Now we're left with a only console market until Nintendo releases a portable only mini Switch next year.

Good opening for etrian odyssey X.
Okay opening for Famista.
Average opening for wario ware, wonder if legs will help or not.
Taiko working its way past 100k.
Octopath numbers increasing.
Scarlet grace opening in the top 10.

Ps4 and switch hardware numbers increasing.
A good but average week.

Minsc You were wondering if the stock issues would result in a notable bump whenever the game came back into more plentiful stock. Here's your proof:
Code:
06./08. [NSW] Octopath Traveler <RPG> (Square Enix) {2018.07.13} (¥6.800) - 18.448 / 164.235 (+39%)
I would bet we don't see Octopath ever approach 30k again (basically top 25k in a week). I think even though it's largely sold out, the demand for it in quantities needed to get close to 30k has passed.

Even if there was absolutely no stock issues - the drop off for the second week is typically quite large is it not? And third week and beyond would just keep decreasing - putting it below 20k naturally without stock issues. Unless any of the BDs sold 25k+ after their first two weeks, which I'm not sure of.

But it'll be interesting to see what happens. I wonder what some of the more dramatic examples of a game being sold out for a few weeks after release then getting restocked have obtained in increased sales. Has there been games that have gone like 150k > 15k > 20k > 75k or whatever before?
You were talking about a bump to above 20k, which this isn't quite, but the combinatio of 18.5k and severe stock issues still show that the momentum didn't nearly decay naturally to below 20k yet.

Is that a really good opening for Etrian Odyssey?

Nice to see that there's still physical demand for Octopath 3 weeks in despite being a single-player JRPG with no planned DLC and the shortages, hopefully the demand and stock will be there for Obon.

That's pretty good for Etrian Odyssey X. It's good to see Octopath Traveler up but a shame that supply still hasn't been properly sorted out yet.
