Famitsu has revealed that Marvelous’ latest Story of Seasons title has surpassed 220,000 shipments in Japan.

This figure not only includes retail shipments, but also includes digital sales from the Nintendo’s 3DS eShop.

This is a majorly impressive achievement for Marvelous and the latest instalment of their long running Story of Seasons series.

Not only does this figure only include Japanese sales, but the 3DS exclusive was only released on June 23rd, meaning the title has only been on sale for just over a month.

This likely bodes well for the continuation of the Story of Seasons series on the 3DS, or even potentially other home consoles and handhelds.

It will be interesting to see not only how this figure grows as we approach its western release, but also to see how it compares to sales of the Harvest Moon series on 3DS.

Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns will launch exclusively on the 3DS in North America on February 28 2017, with XSEED  localising the title.
