Japan – Media Create sales for Week 13, 2015 (March 23 – 29) [Top 50]

This week, there’s two new games on Nintendo platforms in the Top 20: Theatrhythm Dragon Quest (# 4) and Kuroko no Basket: Mirai e no Kizuna (#11). The first one had a rather decent launch, with 76 858 units sold: that’s about 40-60% of all units shipped to retailers according to Famitsu.

It looks like Square-Enix chose to be safe and shipped more copies than needed, which is quite understandable. After all, the very first Theatrhythm game was pretty hard to find at launch, back in 2012. What’s more, Dragon Quest is a really popular IP in Japan, so retailers really shouldn’t have any problems selling the copies they received for launch.

As for Kuroko no Basket: Mirai e no Kizuna, it also had a decent launch with 35 415 units sold during the first 4 days: that’s actually “ok” for a low-budget licenced game from Bandai-Namco, who didn’t ship too many copies to retailers. After all, roughly 60-80% of all copies sent to retailers were actually sold.

As for Hardware, there’s nothing really noteworthy this week. Nintendo 3DS sales are slightly up: 31 229 units were sold during Week 13, compared to 28 704 during Week 12. It looks like the release of Theatrhythm Dragon Quest had a positive, albeit limited, impact on sales. As for Wii U sales, they’re down compared to the previous week: they went from 7 595 units to 6 698 units.
