Unfortunately both The Witch and the Hundred Knights: Revival and¬†Saint Seiya: Soldiers’ Soul debuted with low numbers, but at least for the first Nippon Ichi never seems to worry overmuch about sales.

The PS4 also dropped very sharply, but that was to be expected, as Sony announced a price drop, so obviously everyone is going to wait for tomorrow (actually, it’s already today in Japan), in order to get one at a lower price.
