Tales of Arise Debuts at Top of Japanese Charts, WarioWare a Distant Second - SalesCraig Snow , posted on 16 September 2021 / 1,868 Views
Tales of Arise has debuted at the top of the retail charts in Japan, with sales of 151,316 units on PS4 and 50,482 on PS5, according to Famitsu data for the week ending 12th September 2021.
The combined total of 201,798 units sold for Tales of Arise puts it slightly behind Tales of Berseria's total of 234,092, which itself was significantly down on prior entries, although today's announcement of sales milestones for both games shows that they performed very well globally.
Elsewhere, Nintendo's latest first party effort for Switch - WarioWare: Get It Together! - managed second on the charts with 72,277 units sold. That puts it slightly ahead of the launch figures for the Wii's first WarioWare title, Smooth Moves (63k), but quite a ways behind the series' best-selling entry, the DS title WarioWare: Touched! (117k).
Finally in terms of new entries, the Switch port of Ys IX: Monstrum Nox managed to chart in 9th, selling just 7,324 units.
On the hardware front things were fairly stable. Switch sales saw the most movement, increasing by just over 6,000 units, resulting in an overall total of 67,114. PlayStation 4 sales rose very slightly off the back of Tales of Arise, while Xbox Series slipped back to just over 2,000 units.
