Agreed Noir. The game is a masterpiece and deserves to be unchained from the underpowered 3DS. The sales on 3DS are a travesty. Some would argue that the touch controls were integral to the experience, but I'm sure it would work just fine with a twin stick setup. The character portraits during dialogue could be relegated to the bottom or top corners of the screen. An HD upgrade wouldn't be enough though. The game needs an upgrade to the core assets. Even in HD with the Citra, the low polygon models mar the experience.

Really wish Nintendo would do a remake of this game on the Switch with traditional controls and updated visuals. A game of this value deserves more love and I can't think of any reasons other then the controls and maybe the difficulty as to why it isn't more popular.

Those figures are actually from before the game was out on the eShop, so the game is definitely under tracked...

This is probably under tracked, as Nintendo has the sales figures at 1.18 million units as of March 31, 2013. Yes that includes digital, but those figures are a year old. It must be quite a bit more by now.

I predict 2.5-3.0 million lifetime giving the 3ds remains viable for at least 3 more years but maybe more as Nintendo portables usually sustain longer than their consoles. Plus, despite the fad of 3d cinema, 3d video games, I believe, are here to stay. Glasses-free 3d tech is only getting better. Btw KI:uprising is the best game of the century so far.

So it was an adjustment last week in the UK. But as the other region keep dropping in sales, the sales are down further.

Sharp drop, mostly caused by UK. Sales in UK drop that hard, that I think here is an adjustment. If that is the case, it should go up next week again moderately.

It is nearing 200K in Europe. If it holds this sales, the milestone should be taken next week.

@POE: I made mine a while ago: 1M until end of october. Doesn't look too likely now. To your prediction: currently KI sells around 7K (a bit more) a week. That would mean it need another 23 weeks. 18 weeks are left in the year, so that would match your prediction. This would assume, the game get no boost from the holidays. If we assume, it will double it sales over November/December (8) weeks, it would reach that goal late in December.

As expected it's past Streetfighter now. In the UK the sales may reach 40K next week, in France 50K. But in both cases I think it is more believable that it misses the milestone by a fine margin and another week is needed.

The game is only a little more than 2K behind Street Fighter now, it should overtake it next week. But I expect NSMB2 to go past in no time. So KI will stay on 9th place for 3DS-games. And yes, with the holidays the game should surely break 1 million.

Europe is now the best region for the game - here are nearly the half of the remaining sales. With the exception of the UK it has pretty much stabilized in sales in Europe, the loss of 200 units in Europe as a whole is the same loss the UK alone shows.

At this sales-rate it needs at least 3 weeks to overtake Street Fighter.

Oh, wanted to update the weekly numbers now after the weekend, but the site already put up the numbers for the following week. So I have to do the average number for both weeks. By the way, the new week also brought the overtaking of Pilotwings.

Weeks ending 30th June 2012 and 07th July 2012:
Global: 786,412 / 16,034=2x8017 / -20.4%
USA: 253,794 / 4720=2x2360 / -26.2%

Europe: 166,577 / 6411=2x3,205.5 / -17.8%
UK: 36,193 / 1949=2x974.5 / -19.0%
Germany: 37,702 / 962=2x481 / -33.7%
France: 44,243 / 1,635=2x817.5 / -2.3%

I gave the change between the two weeks and the average in change. This number is base for the percentage.

The ongoing heavy losses are dampened by the moderate winnings in europe. Don't take the percentage in germany too serious, it's only that high, because the sales itself are miserable.

In other news: if nothing goes wrong, the game should overtake next week Pilotwing, get over 250K in the USA and over 300K in Japan. Quite some milestones.

Week ending 16th June 2012:
Global: 760,306 / 10,546 / -17.7%
USA: 245,874 / 3,472 / -15.6%
Japan: 297,417 / 2,655 / -21.0%
Europe: 156,266 / 3,426 / -17.4%
UK: 33,041 / 1,307 / -5.8%
Germany: 36,014 / 339 / -40.7%
France: 41,771 / 785 / -20.1%

@acdcste: Yep, my prediction may be wrong. I'm pretty sure it will get over 1M with the holidays, but before now looks not good. Maybe the XL give also the game another boost.

Im beginning to have my doubts over this reaching a million at the moment. Sales seem to be dropping off quite a lot and its almost out of the top 100 in the us.

I've noticed a lot of adverts on TV for this in the last couple of weeks here in the UK. Good to see.

Should be overtaking pilotwings in two weeks. Its nice to see this game still appearing in the top 100 each week seen as though there are only a handful of 3ds titles that manage that.

Superb game. Best game on the system by a long margin. Looks good for that million by end of October. I wonder if it will be a lowish-selling evergreen...

Only a slight drop in weekly sales. It's now at 736,951 - so it must have sold 15,147 this week globally (-1.9%). It keeps selling above 13K, the hope stays it can make 1 million until end of october.

The regions(total, week ending second June, change):
USA: 238,287 / 4,478 / +27.2%
Japan: 291,402 / 3,977 / -21.3%
Europe: 148,693 / 5,312 / -5.4%
UK: 30,347 / 1,354 / +28.2%
Germany: 35,103 / 1,083 / -24,3%
France: 40,004 / 1,330 / -11.2%

The up in english-speaking countries neutralizes the down in Japan and non-english europe.

@acdcste: It's a great game. For me the best in a year or so.

31k to go till this overtakes pilotwings. I do hope this pushed on to a million as for me its the best ame on the 3ds, even ahead of ocarina of time, mario kart and mario 3d land.

750K should be doable, that is something like 5K per week. 770K looks unlikely if this keeps dropping in sales.

With sales as they are it should be passing the 750k mark by the end of june, maybe around the 770k mark. I was hoping it would average out at 20k for a few weeks but never mind.

Another bad drop. My prediction of 1 million until end of october could be in trouble. But yet it stays above 13K.

@spurge: Unlikely that the US-sales will get past Japan, the weekly sales in Japan are higher than in the US at the moment. The sales in the US drop faster.

I'm not sure there this game will level off. It looked some weeks ago, as if it has found the ground, but now it's dropping even faster in the US and Europe.

To get my prediction (1M until end of October) it has to manage 13K average in the remaining 23 weeks.

We've reached 0.7 million. At 0.01 a week worst case scenario, this can reach a full million by year's end.

@Salnax: I'm pretty confident it should not drop too much in Japan now. We are our of Golden week it seems, and it not too far below the value three weeks ago. Not too sure about the other regions. It seems good in Europe, but that is driven by an increase in UK, and I have no idea what is the reason for that. But the good news is: it has to stay above 13K, too reach the million before holidays. That seems manageable.

I have a real hard time to predict, where this game will level off. While the weekly sales are increasing in UK, France and Japan(!) it drops nearly the same amount each week in the US and faster and faster in germany.
Anyways, 20K weekly seem plausible so far, that would mean 1 million before the holiday-sales are starting.

Agreed Noir. The game is a masterpiece and deserves to be unchained from the underpowered 3DS. The sales on 3DS are a travesty. Some would argue that the touch controls were integral to the experience, but I'm sure it would work just fine with a twin stick setup. The character portraits during dialogue could be relegated to the bottom or top corners of the screen. An HD upgrade wouldn't be enough though. The game needs an upgrade to the core assets. Even in HD with the Citra, the low polygon models mar the experience.

Really wish Nintendo would do a remake of this game on the Switch with traditional controls and updated visuals. A game of this value deserves more love and I can't think of any reasons other then the controls and maybe the difficulty as to why it isn't more popular.
