Last week Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus was released in Japan and in only five days it has sold over 120,000 copies. Marvelous AQL have announced, as revealed by 4Gamer, that these sales include both physical sales as well as downloadable sales. Interestingly enough, Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus is the fastest selling title in the franchise’s history as the best selling game in the series, the 3DS exclusive Senran Kagura Burst only sold 69,084 units in that same time frame.
Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus actually is the third highest selling title for the Vita in Japan, only surpassed by Persona 4 Golden with 137,076 and Hatsune Miku Project Diva F with 159,592. Now it is worth noting that there are numerous reasons for Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus doing well, such as the fact that the game’s fan-service element is glorious, the fact that there is currently a Senran Kagura airing in Japan and probably more than anything else, Shinovi Versus was released in Japan the same week the Vita received a Japan-only price cut.
It is worth noting that there has been no news of Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus heading overseas, despite these impressive sales figures, however the Vita is region free so Shinovi Versus is very import friendly.
