The NPD analyst Mat Piscatella said that Fire Emblem: Three Houses for Switch recorded the best ever launch for the series in the United States, even going up to three times the sales of Shadows of Valentia, the Fire Emblem that until now had sold more copies at launch.
In addition to being the best-selling game in July in the United States after Madden NFL 20 (which we remember to be a multi-platform title), Fire Emblem: Three Houses managed to sell so well that it was by far the best launch for a chapter in the series. in the USA, tripling Fire Emblem: Shadows of Valentia sales.
This is a remarkable result, which does nothing but confirms the great success achieved so far by Fire Emblem: Three Houses. The goals don’t stop at the United States: Nintendo’s game, in fact, managed to sell 80% of the copies distributed in Japan and to dethrone CTR: Nitro-Fueled in the United Kingdom.
In short, the success of the new Fire Emblem chapter can be defined as planetary. What do you think?
US NPD SW – Fire Emblem: Three Houses was the 2nd best-selling game of July 2019. It is the largest launch of a Fire Emblem game in U.S. history, with launch month sales tripling those of the previous best-seller in release month, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. pic.twitter.com/Q2HAlhnKDJ
