Japan - Day 1 sales for Assassin's Creed III Remastered, Resident Evil: Origins Collection, Team Sonic Racing, and more

Disappointment all around

Time for another day-one sales data round-up for Japan! Check out the breakdowns for Assassin's Creed III Remastered, Resident Evil: Origins Collection, Team Sonic Racing, and Minna no Doubutsu Shogi below.

[PS4] [NSW] Assassin’s Creed III Remastered (Ubisoft) – 20%. Unexpectedly, sales are quite low

[NSW] Resident Evil: Origins Collection (Capcom) – 10%. Extremely poor debut, even for the late port of remasters, but not too surprising for a bundle with only one game on the cartridge

[NSW] [PS4] Team Sonic Racing (Sega) – 20-30%. Poor debut, especially as sell-through ratio is based on 3 days of sales

[NSW] Minna no Doubutsu Shogi (SilverStar) – No sell-through ratio provided, which is definitely not a good sign.

Resident Evil Origins Collection - North American cover art

Two times the evil

Coming to the Nintendo Switch on May 21, 2019, Resident Evil Origins Collection includes remastered versions of the critically acclaimed Resident Evil and its popular prequel, Resident Evil 0. Both fans of and newcomers to the Resident Evil series, having sold over 88 million units to date, can experience the origins of the Resident Evil saga at home or on the go. The story in Resident Evil Origins Collection takes players back to July 1998. In Resident Evil 0, Raccoon City's Special Forces division, S.T.A.R.S., has sent its Bravo team to investigate mounting and unusual murders on the city's outskirts. Rookie S.T.A.R.S. member Rebecca Chambers teams up with death row convict and ex-Navy lieutenant Billy Coen in order to survive the nightmares that await them. Resident Evil takes place immediately afterward and players take on the roles of either Chris Redfield or Jill Valentine, as they are forced to take shelter in a mysterious mansion filled with unimaginable horrors. Both games contain limited ammo and survival items, and players will need to keep their wits about them to survive nefarious traps, puzzles, and the undead.

I've never really seen a collection/compilation game that has cover art that I enjoy, and this cover continues that trend. It's just a basic mash-up of previous covers. It's lovely to see the games coming to Switch, but the cover art leaves a bit to be desired.
