[Japan] Media Create sales for Week 23, 2018 (June 4th – June 10th) [Top 50]

Little Nightmares: Complete Edition

Important note: due to an extremely busy schedule this week, our “analysis” of the latest weekly data from Media Create is limited to the new releases this time around. Back to regular programming next week!

Media Create

Week 23 saw the releases of several games on multiple platforms, with a couple of them on Nintendo Switch and (for the first time in a while) on Nintendo 3DS.

Let’s start with Little Nightmares: Complete Edition, which debuted with 7 776 units sold. A pretty decent debut for a game with a rather limited audience, and slightly better than the PlayStation 4 version (roughly 2 000 units give or take). Unfortunately, it will most likely be gone from the Top 20 from Media Create as early as next week.

Unfortunately, it looks like Nintendo and indieszero’s sushi weren’t the freshest, as Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido only sold about 7 500 units… on Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS combined:

  • Nintendo Switch: 5 235 units
  • Nintendo 3DS: 2 392 units

Unfortunately, sales are unlikely to improve in the upcoming weeks, and both verisions of the game are bound to drop from the Top 20 from Media Create as early as next week. It looks like there really isn’t much of a market for high-end puzzle games at retail anymore.

This week, Hardware sales remain perfectly flat for the Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo 3DS, though that’s no big surprise: Sushi Striker: The Way of Sushido wasn’t going to have any sort of impact at all.
