Since the game’s launch last Friday, Fire Emblem Fates has succeeded its predecessor Fire Emblem Awakening in having the best launch for the series in the US, selling five times more in the same time span. With the Birthright path leading the charge, with the Conquest path following closely behind it.
Its no surprise it did so well, considering the heavier marketing push like inserting Corrin in Smash for the Wii U as DLC, and in general the series having more of a presence after Awakening’s success. The controversy over localization probably had a helping hand in small quantities in giving the game more exposure as well. Fire Emblem Fates is a Nintendo 3DS exclusive and is now available, with a release date for Europe still up in the air.
