[Japan] Media Create sales for Week 20, 2017 (May 15 – May 21) [Top 50]

Media Create

You know a week is a slow one when half of the games in the Media Create Top 10 (let alone Top 20!) didn’t even sell 5 000 units… and that’s exactly what happened this week. There were a couple of new releases, but none of them were on Nintendo platforms.

Despite Nintendo Switch sales slowing down these past few weeks (still because of shortages), Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is still selling at a steady pace. This week, 28 781 additional units were sold (-21%), which brings the total to 440 696 units sold since launch. It looks like it should be able to reach 500 000 units sold in early June.

Monster Hunter XX is also selling steadily, and getting closer to the 1.5 million threshold: it’s currently sitting at 1 479 189 units, which means it will reach it in early June. This week, 12 643 units were sold, which is 16% less than last week.

Next, here’s how the Nintendo Switch launch titles have been faring:

  •  03./03. [NSW] The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Nintendo) – 10.849 / 465.631 (-9%). Sales remain steady despite the drop in Nintendo Switch sales, which is a pretty positive sign for this game.

The Wii U version of the game sold 3 286 units, and its sales were also stable (even more so than the Nintendo Switch version: only -3%). It’s now sold 122 993 units since launch, which brings the total for Nintendo Switch + Wii U versions to 588 624 units sold since launch.

  •  13./11. [NSW] 1-2-Switch (Nintendo) – 2.937 / 211.793 (-14%). Sales are not quite as steady as Zelda’s, but 1-2-Switch remains one of the key titles of the Nintendo Switch.

To reach 1 million units before the end of the year, The Legen of Zelda: Breath of the Wild needs to sell at least 411 376 units during the next 32 weeks, and that’s about 12 855 units per week.

Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission X also saw a drop in sales this week, with -29%. With 7 470 additional units, it’s getting closer to the 150 000 units thresholds, which should be reached next week if everything goes well.

As for Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, it’s inching closer to the 200 000 units threshold, though it’s going to take a couple more weeks before it reaches it (it’s currently at 179 268 units, after selling 4 400 units (-23%) this week).

Finally, here’s how the remaining games in the Top 20 are faring:

  • 11./05. [3DS] Attack on Titan: Escape from Certain Death (Koei Tecmo) – 3.238 / 11.837 (-62%). After a mediocre debut, the second week is slightly better than anticipated, but not by much;
  • 12./14. [3DS] Pokémon Sun / Moon (Pokemon Co.) – 3.043 / 3.262.880 (-1%). Sales remain steady… not much to say this time!
  • 14./15. [3DS] Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo (Nintendo) – 2.905 / 178.852 (-1%). It doesn’t look like this one is ready to drop from the Top 20 any time soon!
  • 15./10. [3DS] Mario Sports Superstars <SPT> (Nintendo) {2017.03.30} (¥4.980) – 2.865 / 92.829 (-18%). It’s getting steadily closer to 100 000 units sold, which should happen sometime in June;
  • 17./16. [3DS] Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS (Nintendo) {2016.12.01} (¥4.700) – 2.774 / 1.041.237 (-5%). Steadily sales, week after week;
  • 18./09. [3DS] Pro Baseball Famista Climax (Bandai Namco Games) – 2.753 / 76.436 (-30%). Now that the holiday period is over, this one is about to drop form the Top 20 (which should happen next week).

Media Create – Hardware

Hardware-wise, there’s nothing much to say. The Nintendo Switch is still supply-constrained, but its sales still went slightly up this week. With 26 114 units sold this week, the console is getting closer and closer to the first million. Unless Nintendo somehow cannot ship enough units, it will reach 900 000 units next week, and total sales should top 1 million units several weeks before Splatoon 2.

It looks like the Nintendo Switch is not going to sell much than 25-30 000 units during the next couple of weeks. At the very least, it doesn’t look like Nintendo is going to have a significantly bigger shipment until ARMS (out on June 16th). How big the shipment will be for that particular game remains to be seen.

Nintendo 3DS Sales are also slightly up this week, with 18 060 units sold. That’s a bit better than last year during the same week (by about 3 000 units). So far, sales in 2017 are up by about 23 000 units, which is pretty good. But of course, that doesn’t take into account the Pokémon Nintendo 2DS bundle (about 100 000 units LTD, not tracked by Famitsu or Media Create).

Finally, even the Wii U is slightly up this week, but at this point, it’s nothing more than statistical noise.
