No Heroes Allowed! VR flops in Japanese debut


The first major 2017 Japanese PlayStation VR exclusive didn’t turn out to be so major after all. Sony Interactive Entertainment and Acquire’s No Heroes Allowed!

[PSP] No Heroes Allowed! – 29,262 / 173,724
[PSP] No Heroes Allowed! 2 – 58,806 / 217,627
[PSP] No Heroes Allowed! 3D – 33,920 / 100,308
