Time Travelers made its debut on both the Playstation Vita and Nintendo 3DS this week. The Level-5 story driven game didn’t make a big splash on the Japanese scene. Both versions sold a combined 19,648 units, which isn’t great news. This is the second time that a new IP that Level-5 have created that hasn’t sold numbers it should have, following the PS3 debut of Ni No Kuni. With that said, the two versions did enough to earn a place in the Media Create Top 10.
What should be noted is the separate figures themselves. While it was initially revealed as a 3DS exclusive and the 3DS featured in the commercials leading up to release, the Vita version has edged out the 3DS by the slightest of margins. The Vita version sold 9,887 units while the 3DS version sold 9,761. They were both shy of the 10,000 mark. However, these figures do not take account of the PSP version, which will see a release next week. On the other hand, there is a possibility that these figures may hurt any localisation possibilities for Time Travelers, if there were any in the first place.
