Yakuza6

Last time we reported on Yakuza 6, SEGA announced that the title managed over 500,000 shipped copies to Japan and the Asian markets. Now, with the release of the latest Media Create, we can confirm that the last title in the Kazuma Kiryu saga has sold over 300,000 units to consumers in Japan. For the week of December 26th – January 1st 2017 the title continued to show some legs in its 4th week of release.

Yakuza 6 also climbed up the ranking from last week, from 9th to 7th, thanks to having a lower drop than other titles. It’s showing some decent legs, having sold over an additional 90,000 units from its release week. It seems likely that the game might sell out its first shipment (360,000) but whether it can do much more and perhaps reach over 400,000 units might still be a target it’ll just miss. It should be noted that Yakuza 0‘s total sales fell just sort of 400,000 and that was over two platforms so I’m more inclined to believe the same will occur to Yakuza 6. Still, we might see a minor boost for the title. Sony’s hardware traditionally does well in the New Year period (demographics lining up) and if Yakuza 6 can get a minor bump it might just help the final installment in the Kazuma Kiryu saga push past 400,000 units.
