Last official numbers for Fates from Nintendo came from their Fiscal Reports from April 2015 to March 2016, which had Birthright and Conquest combined at 1.84 million, BEFORE the European launch and just after the North American launch.
Take that 1.84 number and add .85 million to it (the amount that is tracked on VGC from March 26th, 2016 - 1.03 million - to May 20th, 2017), that would put this at 2.69 million as of May 20th + whatever digital sales that are not tracked.

2 million shouldn't be too far away, but damn... those European sales could be better.

I think with Fates, Fire Emblem has certainly been solidified as a big first-party IP in the west. However, I think it will probably only do these numbers on handhelds, I doubt it'd have the same impact on a home console.

@darwinianevolution I think its quite the oposite actually.First of all this game will keep on selling at least until the end of next year, even with the NX, and since the legs so far are good, it will still have good physical sales.But as you stated yourself, the digital sales should be big due to the different versions aproach(which sucks by the way).Considering everything, and the fact that this game was already at around 1.85 months ago(I think it was before the european launch), Fates should be well ahead of 2.5 million at this point.Lifetime sales should reach 4 million in my opinion.

I'm sure a good chunk of its sales are digital, jut to have the game whole in one package. Cutting this game into three parts was a terrible decision, but the game sold well enough regardless of it. It could have topped Awakening if that wasn't the case.

Europe may have had a relatively weak opening compared to NA and Japan, but on the bright side its showing some good legs!

While the first week was only marginally better, it seems to be holding up a lot better than FE:A.

It could be 2mil now from the numbers Nintendo gave us (which includes digital sales / people who bought the 2nd story through digital)

@Dadric. What were you expecting? Just the long wait and the weird format release are enough to kill the hype. I will buy this game when I find a Special Edition, or when it's significantly discounted at digital.

Honestly, it wasn't a big release in EU.
Little to no marketing, little hype overall, except for fans of the saga...
No wonder the numbers aren't that high

EU sales seem a bit low, looking at the growth NA had from Awakening.

According to NPD Fates has sold a bit under 450,000 unit lifetime at retail by end of March. VGC has the game at 444,000 unit.

Not bad. (it's also 560,000 including digital, but that's another story)

Is there a way to know which version has sold the most? Technically we are counting two games on retail (three on digital), and people might buy the two versions, or just one and download the rest.

The amount of digital sales Fates has is probably crazy! I bet this will be forever massively undertracked here.

I called every retailer on my region, and all the special editions sold out in a matter of minutes. They didn't have even time to put the game on their websites it was sold out that fast. Nintendo is making so many special editions their audience don't have the oportunity to even buy it. I want your game complete in one cartridge, and I'm willing to pay, just let me get the thing!

@noir I'm sorry but this format is amazing. We get 3 games per release? Sign me up. Birthright and conquest are beyond different. This game is dual release gone right. It's a step in the right direction imo

NoirSon posted 12/03/2016, 03:36
If you cost the branch DLC as well, this will probably wind up doing double the profit of Awakening... which almost scares me that they might continue the dual release format in future releases.

Bottom Line: including digital sales for both NA and Japan, this game shattered 1 million a long time ago.

It seems that VGC undertracked the preordered by a good 50k so it should really be over .93m here.
Damn, good call Tolu!

300,000 first week in USA it seem. It should be close to 400,000 in February NPD including digital, and still well over 300,000 at retail.

The cashier at my local GameStop said they've been getting so many preordered of Fates that they are strongly considering doing a midnight release.
