Japan: Famitsu sales for 2016 (Top 100 Software, Top 5 publishers, more)

Pokemon Sun and Moon

In its latest issue, Famitsu magazine provides us with the usual annual sales data for the video game market in Japan, with not just the Top 100 Software, but also the Top 5 publishers, and more.

Famitsu – Top 5 publishers for 2016

Let’s start right away with the Top 5 publishers, once again dominated by Nintendo (despite a rather lackluster line-up compared to previous years). The company’s games ended up selling 4 161 149 units at retail (including download cards), which is half as much as last year (8 450 000 units).

The Pokémon Company makes its comeback in the Top 5 thanks to Pokémon Sun and Moon, while Level-5 went up one place with rather stable sales this year (they should have increased, if not for Yo-kai Watch 3 massively underperforming).

Square-Enix also went up, again with some rather stable sales this year. Meanwhile, Bandai-Namco’s sales were down by more than 50%. As for Capcom, it simply dropped from the Top 5 altogether… not releasing a new Monster Hunter game will do that to you!

01. Nintendo – 4.161.149
02. Pokemon Co. – 3.607.449
03. Square Enix – 3.147.687
04. Level 5 – 2.673.211
05. Bandai Namco – 1.872.763

Famitsu – Hardware sales for 2016

As for Hardware, the Nintendo 3DS was once again the best-selling platform, but the PlayStation 4 wasn’t far behind this time around. Wii U sales dropped sharply this year, but this really isn’t a surprise…

3DS – 1.874.457 / 21.911.413
PS4 – 1.790.883 / 3.921.616
PSV – 865.002 / 5.247.419
WiiU – 336.151 / 3.279.738
PS3 – 50.978 / 10.257.719
XB One – 8.897 / 72.948
