Famitsu sales for September 2015 (Top 30 Retail + Digital)

In its latest issue, Famitsu is providing sales data for September 2015 (August 31st to October 4th to be more precise), which includes digital sales (from the Nintendo eShop, PSN, etc.).Super Mario Maker

Super Mario Maker was the best-selling game on Nintendo platforms in September, with 344 204 units sold (including 33 018 via the Nintendo eShop). This is a pretty great debut for the game, which will prove pretty popular during the holiday period. Now it just remains to be seen how far it will go before it disappears from the weekly charts.

Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon is #3, with 239 131 units sold (including 6 737 via the Nintendo eShop), which is a rather decent performance. However, shipments for the first week clearly showed that The Pokémon Company and Nintendo expected more out of this game.

Other games released in September include Monster Hunter Diary Poka-Poka Airou Village DX (which is #10 with a total of 92 425 units sold at retail + on the Nintendo eShop), but also Picross 3D (which is #19 with 33 339 units sold at retail + on the Nintendo eShop).

As for the games which came out earlier this year, such as Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King, Splatoon, or Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer, they enjoyed strong sales during September, which isn’t one of the best months of the year for video game sales (still significantly better than October!).

Finally, there’s two Nintendo eShop-only titles in the chart, which both came out earlier this year (which shows just how well they have been selling):

  • Cube Creator 3D: 38 292 units sold, 119 404 units in total;
  • Tobidasu! Nyanko Taisensou: 19 684 units sold.
