Shin Megami Tensei 4 blows away the competition in Japan

Shin Megami Tensei 4

The new Shin Megami Tensei game has done really, really well so far in Japan.

Between the period of May 20 and May 26, Shin Megami Tensei 4 sold 188,562 copies for 3DS. It released on May 23 and is due for North America on July 16. I wonder how sales will compare between regions.

This makes SMT4 one of Atlus's best early-performing titles in recent years — only second to 2008's Persona 4 (that's the PlayStation 2 version), which sold several thousand more in its first week of launch.

The role-playing game even beat Resident Evil: Revelations (in third place), which came to consoles the same week as Shin Megami Tensei 4, selling a combined 102,673 copies between platforms.

Namco Bandai's Kamen Rider: Battride War for PlayStation 3 ranked second with 128,659 copies sold. These were all new releases in the top three.
