Japan: more sales data for Week 6, 2017, DQM Joker 3 Pro, more (Media Create, Dengeki)

Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 3 Professional

Media Create (Week 6, 2017)

Today, Media Create published its weekly report on video game sales in Japan during Week 6, 2017. It reveals that total Software sales topped 490 000 units, which is 140.49% of Week 5 sales. That strong increase is due to several titles, including Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 3 Professional that sold over 122 000 units during its opening week.

Media Create reports an unusually high sell-through ratio for that game: 90%, which means that unless Square-Enix had additional shipments ready, the second week will see a (massive) drop in sales. As for new releases, sales topped 241 000 units, which is a significant increase over Week 5 (with only 18 000 units for new releases).

Unfortunately, sales dropped for Hardware, with 64 000 units in total (87.53% of Week 5 sales).

Dengeki (Week 6, 2017)

Dengeki reports pretty similar sales for Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 3 Professional, with 126 000 units sold. Despite this version not selling as well as Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2 Professional did back on Nintendo DS (164 000 units), the sell-through ratio is still pretty good: ~90%.

Speaking of Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2 Professional, it ended up selling 640 000 units, as opposed to 1.2 million units for the original version. That means the sale ratio between the two is 48.3%. When applied to Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 3, such a ratio would give 318 000 units sold LTD for the Professional version. That would allow both versions to reach 1 million units sold (the original has sold over 660 000 units to date).

Software and Hardware sales are also pretty similar to Media Create’s data:

  • Hardware: 66 000 units sold (-10.5%)
