Sales lists are always a good reflection of expectations of the players regarding the titles recently launched on the market. Normally, a good debut is synonymous with attracting fans with the new proposal, and within the same saga, it also serves to contextualize the launch in relation to the figures that said saga usually moves. With this, there was a desire to see how the debut of Fire Emblem Engage in different parts of the world, and we can already say that from the United Kingdom Good news arrives for the strategy title, but not entirely brilliant, if they are contextualized in the franchise.
Fire Emblem Engage in the UK: first of the week, second of the saga
The video game sales figures for the weekend in the United Kingdom reflect two very different realities around Fire Emblem Engage: the first, the absolute one, places it in the first place in the ranking, unseating FIFA 23, which had dominated with an iron fist for several weeks. The second, relativizing in terms of the rest of the titles in the saga, places him in a second place that sounds more than decent, but that tastes like little when compared to the first place. In short, the second best debut in Fire Emblem history is 31% below what it achieved Three Houses, at least in relation to the United Kingdom. It remains to be seen how the reception has been in other markets such as the American or Japanese, but for now, the winds of Fódlan continue to be the ones that have blown the strongest in the tactical role-playing saga of the great N.
The rest of the ranking is as follows:
- Fire Emblem Engage
- FIFA 23
- God of War Ragnarok
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II
- pokemon purple
- Nintendo Switch Sports
- Animal Crossing: New Horizons
- Scarlet Pokemon
