Golden Week (Japanese:, Hepburn: Gōruden Wīku)or Ōgon Shūkan () is a week from the 29th of April to very early May containing a number of Japanese vacations. It is also referred to as Ōgata Renkyū (,lengthy holiday series ).
Here are the best sellers of games and consoles in Japan for the week of 23 to 29 August 2021, established and communicated as always by Famitsu magazine.
More than 20 years after the exit of the original game, the remake of Tsukihime: A Piece of Blue Glass Moon is ample justifying its existence as early as the week of its launch. Probably attracting some nostalgics having experienced the game at the time but also new followers of the work painted by Kinoko Nasu and type-moon since with the saga Fate , the game starts with more than 138,000 sales by combining Physical SWITCH and PS4 copies, which is the least remarkable for an Novel Visual to 7,000 yen room, in addition to being a good news for Melty Blood: type Lumina , combat game whose characters are from this narrative.
The other output of the week is far from shining with the same brilliance. For a little bit, No More Heroes 3 would have even been able to miss the top 10 and spend even more unnoticed with its 7,951 sales. Far from being prophet in his country, like other adulated creators like Hidaka Suehiro or Kotaro Uchikoshi, Goichi Suda will have to bet on the rest of the world to offer an exit a minimum worthy of the name to Travis Touchdown, including the Best performance in Japan will remain on No More Heroes: Heroes’ Paradise , PS3 Portage of the first PS Move compatible episode released in July 2011 (40 050 for launch sales).
On the console sales side, the switch is preparing to cross the 21 million console bar installed in Japan just over a month before the OLED model output. The Playstation 5 renews this week with the 20,000 sales mark (but for how long?) While the Xbox Series aligns a second week consecutive at more than 5,000 sales and continues to do much better than the Xbox One in his time.
