    It's safe to say God of War Ragnarok is a massive flop globally in Japan

    While I understand the globally in Japan reference, GOW actually had a very nice hold on the 2018s debut.

    I'm also happy to see Tactics get some love too.

    I think 46k is the best Week 1 for a Sonic game in Japan (at least without Mario) since Sonic Heroes in 2003.

    Digging up old Famitsu numbers, here's what I've got:

    Adventure - 439k

    Adventure 2 - 108k

    Heroes - Unknown since only the GameCube version charted Week 1 (30k), but based on lifetime sales of the other two versions, probably 55k or so.

    06 - 39k

    Unleashed - 10k

    Colors - N/A, about 12k lifetime on Wii

    Generations - N/A, 18k lifetime on consoles

    Lost World - 2k

    Forces - 10k

    I guess that Korone Inugami DLC really did the trick.
