Live A Live storms to the top, but looks can be deceiving

Live A Live storms to the top, but looks can be deceiving • JPGAMES.DE

The Japanese sales charts for the week of July 18 to July 24, 2022 are available. Live A Live, the HD2D remake of the SNES classic, was also released in Japan this week.

It topped the charts with 71,000 units sold, but looks can be deceiving. As Game data library determined to be the weakest start of an HD2D game to date. It started 18% weaker than Triangle Strategy last time. Physical sales are also lower than the original game’s launch week in 1994.

Live A Live certainly didn’t have it easy a week before Xenoblade Chronicles 3 and Digimon Survive, but so did the 1994 original. It came out a week after EarthBound.

Is the great HD2D euphoria over? Given the more than 71,000 pieces, that is of course not the case. And at Square Enix they also have some plans for the special optics. Even if HD2D games are more expensive than we think.

A Nintendo game celebrated a milestone. Mario Party Superstars broke the million mark last week and can now join the many million sellers on Nintendo Switch.
