Infinite Wealth dev surprised by strong early sales

Like a Dragon: infinite Wealth surprised even its producer — Masayoshi Yokoyama — with its strong early sales. The game also broke other series-bound records like the sheer amount of content found in the game and being the most well-reviewed game of the series.

In a statement to

), Yokoyama noted that the series traditionally sells at a slow rate before picking up as time goes on and word of mouth does its thing. He also notes that the series has an ****** player base so there’s “no rush” to getting around to the title. Unlike other entries, though, Infinite Wealth hit the ground running, shipping a million copies in its first week alone.

The strong sales isn’t the only thing it has going for it, though, as it also has fantastic critical reception despite locking a common feature of the RPG series behind a paywall.

“We gave a press release about how [Infinite Wealth] sold over one million copies worldwide in one week following its release, but it’s really a speed we have never experienced before.

Like a Dragon games sell in the long run, rather than right off the bat. This has been the case ever since the series’ early days. It has an ****** player base, after all, so there’s no rush, you know?

People hear about the games from their friends, they happen to come across them, and that’s how the titles grow. That’s why the way [Infinite Wealth] started off was quite surprising to me.”
