[Japan] Media Create sales for Week 7, 2017 (Feb. 13 – Feb. 19) [Top 50]

Update: added Top 50 from Media Create!

Media Create

This week was pretty calm overall, with absolutely no new releases on Nintendo platforms (even the games that did come out on other platforms didn’t sell all that much). Pokémon Sun and Moon held rather well, with 14 610 additional units sold (only -11%), and 3 163 538 units since launch (retail and stand-alone version only).

As for Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 3 Professional, sales dropped hard during the second week, with -88% compared to launch week (14 489 units sold). It looks like the high sell-through ratio for Week 1 reported by Media Create was indeed a sign that sales would suffer a massive drop during Week 2, as Square-Enix was quite visibly not able to ship additional copies in time.

There isn’t anything else really interesting to say about this week, so here’s a quick rundown of how the various other Wii U and Nintendo 3DS games in the Top 20 from Media Create fared:

  • 07./07. [3DS] Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS (Nintendo) – 7.704 / 969.775 (-18%). Sales remain strong even outside of holiday periods, which is pretty good news;
  • 08./06. [3DS] Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World (Nintendo) – 6.916 / 86.892 (-27%). Sales also remain strong for that one, and they should have no trouble topping 100 000 units soon (most likely in early March);
  • 09./08. [3DS] Yo-Kai Watch 3: Sukiyaki (Level 5) – 6.814 / 669.153 (-21%). If sales remain strong enough, this one should reach 700 000 unit sold in late March / early April;
  • 16./11. [3DS] Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo (Nintendo) – 4.036 / 130.595 (-7%). Yes, this game from 2011 is still holding in the Top 20 from Media Create, and doesn’t really want to “die”. Sales should top 150 000 units within the next couple of months;
  • 19./15. [3DS] Momotaro Dentetsu 2017: Tachiagare Nippon!! (Nintendo) – 2.899 / 286.731 (-22%). This one is still holding in the Top 20, but it’s most likely the last week it’s doing so…
  • 20./19. [WIU] Minecraft: Wii U Edition (Microsoft Game Studios) – 2.807 / 291.684 (+0%). Another title still holding in the Top 20 from Media Create, but most likely for its final week.

Media Create – Hardware

Hardware-wise, this was a pretty calm weeks for Nintendo platforms. The Nintendo 3DS ended up selling 22 294 units, which is roughly 3 000 units less than during Week 6, and 1 600 units less than Week 7, 2016. So far, the Nintendo 3DS is holding rather well this year, which is quite remarkable with the lack of significant Software releases (that could move Hardware).

As for the Wii U, it sold less than 500 units this week: 491 to be more precise. And it’s only going to sell less and less as weeks go by.
