Senjou no Valkyria 3 sales numbers
Famitsu has made public the top 100 best selling games of 2011, the list tracks games released from December 27, 2010 to December 25, 2011. Senjou no Valkyria 3 ranked at 76th position of the list with 152.659 units sold. The game was released on January 27, 2011, this means that the game sold that amount of units in 11 months.
To this numbers we have to add the digital sales and also the digital and retailer sales of the Extra Edition released in November of the last year. Numbers are unknown, but as I reported some time ago the retailer version of the Extra Edition sold less than 13.000 units after 5 days on sale, the game ranked in position number 28 that week and the next week was already gone from the top 50 best selling games chart.
I think is safe to asume that between the retailer and digital versions of the regular game and the Extra Edition, the game has sold around 200.000 copies, is that good?, I really don't know, sales are better than the ones from Senjou no Valkyria 2 but some people think that the reason Sega released so quick the Extra Edition is because they were unhappy with the sales of the regular game, but to be fair they released the budget version of Senjou no Valkyria 1 and 2 very quick too.
Time will tell if the sales numbers are good enough to keep the franchise alive.
