FF3 sells faster than FF12

Sinobi(a japanese blogger who follows Japanese sales) states that FF3 sold more than 300k units and lots of shortages for the first day of release.

Sell through rate is higher than FF12.

First week sales should be around 500k+ (More if Square-Enix can ship more)

Rune Factory should do about 40-60K in the first week.

Here are unconfirmed first day sales of new releases in Japan, from neo at neogaf.

Quote:
NDS FF3 - 309,000 (68%)
NDS FF3 + DSL Crystal Pack - 21,000 (86%)
NDS Rune Factory - 30,000 (42%)
PSP GG judgement - 7,400 (32%)
PS2 Wrestle Angels Survivor- 6,300 (69%)
Seems like Square-Enix should have shipped more than 450K for release...

Now for the pictures

This is really suprising becuase unlike us, this really is a remake of a game they have already had.

See what magic Square+Nintendo can make?

FF12 isn't the normal sort of RPG the Japanese like.

So, what was the sales for FF12?

Well I hope this does not discourage Japanese developers to be different in RPGs. I am getting tired of the traditional setup.

Wonder if square will ever think about why this happened...

If FF3 and Tales of the Tempest reach europe i might consider getting a DS more seriously.

Hmm... wouldnt mind FF4 remade in the same fashion as 3.

Nintendo should pick them both up hopefully not that it really matters as the US versions will do.
