Japan – Media Create sales for Week 40, 2015 (Sept. 28 – Oct. 4) [Top 50]

Update

We added the rest of the Top 50 to this post: you will find it below!

***
Picross 3D 2During Week 40, only one game came out on Nintendo platforms in Japan: Picross 3D 2, on Nintendo 3DS. It had a pretty decent debut, with 30 468 units sold during the first four days. According to Famitsu, roughly 70% of all units sent to retailers were sold, which is a pretty good sign. Now it just remains to be seen how much it’s going to sell during the next few weeks/months!

Unfortunately, that’s pretty much it for Nintendo platforms this week in Japan, as everything else is down. Even the likes of Splatoon (which is selling more than Mario Kart 8, if you compare weekly sales) and Yo-kai Watch Busters are down, though some games are obviously more impacted than others.

Hardware-wise, the Nintendo 3DS is slightly down week-on-week, but slightly up year-on-year, with 24 250 units sold. For once, it’s not the best-selling platform in Japan, due to the PlayStation 4 price drop (which boosted its sales), but it should get back on top in the within the next two weeks. Unfortunately, October will not be particular great for 3DS (or even Wii U) sales in Japan.

As for the Wii U, its sales dropped significantly this week, but it’s still holding above the 10 000 units sold/week threshold… but for how long? Without any retail release in October, sales are bound to drop even more in the upcoming weeks, and there’s little Splatoon and Super Mario Maker will be able to do about that. This week, 12 843 Wii U were sold in Japan.
