Needy Streamer Overload

During a presentation at CEDEC 2023, the president of Ryu’s Office (the company in charge of marketing) shared some interesting details about the sales of WSS Playground’s smash hit, Needy Streamer Overload.

We already knew that the game has already sold over 1 million units worldwide as of June 30th, but during that presentation, it was announced that sales have now surpassed 1.2 million units (as of July 27th). That’s 200 000 units in just one month!

But what’s particularly interesting is the regional breakdown of sales. The game was designed with the Japanese audience in mind, and yet, the country where it sold the most is… China, with over 50% of sales!

  • China: 612,279 units sold
  • Japan: 131,936 units sold
  • Americas: 113,911 units sold
  • South Korea: 45,187 units sold
  • Other: 310,622 units sold
  • Total: 1,217,935 units sold

Unfortunately, no platform breakdown is provided, but given the weight of China in total sales, there’s little doubt Steam is the leading platform.
