Its awesome how big a success fire emblem awakening was.

480K copies sold in Japan(as of the end of 2012) with over 1.2 million DLC downloads(as of September 22nd)

According to this it had made 35 million in revenue as of september 20th so with tail end sales and DLC its probably made nearly 40 million.

Fire emblem sells better in America then in Japan so this will probably be the first million seller fire emblem and will probably make about 100 million in revenue when all is said and done. So Definitley a nice profit there as I can assure you fire emblem would not take even half that to make.

The VGchartz sales make sense with what we have seen on media create.

Nice to see fire emblem getting bigger. I think more fire emblem on 3DS is assured :D

Oh and the original fire emblem release on virtual console a while ago in Japan.

Methinks it will hit America near the release of awakening.

Yeah right. Unless they're going to translate it, they aren't going to release it. Also don't we have Shadow Dragon which is the first game?
