[Japan] Media Create sales for Week 6, 2017 (Feb. 06 – Feb. 12) [Top 50]

Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 3 Professional

Update: added the Top 50 from Media Create!

Media Create

This week, several games were released in Japan, and one of them was on Nintendo 3DS: Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 3 Professional. The original version had really disappointing sales (one of the worst debuts ever for the series), so in comparison, this “Professional” version seems to have done rather well during its opening week (though nothing to write home about, unfortunately!).

It sold 122 051 units during its opening week, which is about 80-100% of all units shipped to retailers according to Famitsu’s data (Media Create’s sell-through data will hopefully be known by the end of the week). In comparison, Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2 Professional sold 168 740 units during its launch week (according to Famitsu).

The rest of the Top 20 isn’t all that exciting this week, with little (signifcant) movement: sales are down for pretty much all games, which isn’t surprising at the beginning of the month. Here’s how the various games on Nintendo platforms fared:

  • 05./02. [3DS] Pokemon Sun / Moon (Pokemon Co.) – 16.477 / 3.148.928 (-17%). Sales remain stable, and better than Pokémon X and Y’s during a similar time frame;
  • 06./03. [3DS] Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World (Nintendo) – 9.495 / 79.976 (-27%). This one should be able to reach 100 000 units sold before the end of the month, or in Early March at the latest;
  • 07./04. [3DS] Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS (Nintendo) – 9.367 / 962.071 (-19%). This handheld version has been doing pretty well, and will have no trouble reaching 1 million units at retail alone (it will not happen overnight, though);
  • 08./05. [3DS] Yo-Kai Watch 3: Sukiyaki (Level 5) – 8.583 / 662.339 (-25%);
  • 11./13. [3DS] Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo (Nintendo) – 4.362 / 126.559 (-9%). Slow sales during the first couple of months of the year has allowed this one to remain in the Top 20 far longer than you’d expect such an old title to;
  • 15./14. [3DS] Momotaro Dentetsu 2017: Tachiagare Nippon!! (Nintendo) – 3.732 / 283.832 (-21%). Unfortunately, this one will most likely leave the Top 20 sooner rather than later, due to upcoming releases. It will easily reach 300 000 units sold within the next couple of months;
  • 17./17. [3DS] Miitopia (Nintendo) – 3.087 / 168.166 (-21%). Same as Momotaro Dentetsu 2017, though with worse sales;
  • 19./20. [WIU] Minecraft: Wii U Edition (Microsoft Game Studios) – 2.796 / 288.878 (-11%). One last hurrah for one of the few Wii U games that managed to remain in the Top 20 far longer than almost all other Wii U games (including first-party titles). It should be able to sell the remaining 12 000 units to reach 300 000 units at retail.

Media Create – Hardware

Hardware-wise, the Nintendo 3DS held pretty well this week, with 25 787 units sold (only 314 units less than during Week 5). Sales are still down Year on Year, but at least the drop is not nearly as bad as you would expect for such an old platform (less than 2 000 units). It will be interesting to see how the Nintendo 3DS sells during the upcoming months.

As for the Wii U, sales dropped to 543 units this week, and there’s no doubt they will drop even further next week. In fact, it will not be surprising if Media Create and/or Famitsu stop tracking it when the Nintendo Switch launches, since it has already been discontinued (and retailers do not have that many units left to sell).
