[Japan] Media Create sales for Week 29, 2016 (July 18th – 24th) [Top 50]

Update: we just added the full Media Create – Top 50 chart!

During Week 29, several games came out in Japan, but only one is on Nintendo 3DS: Sumikko Gurashi: Mura o Tsukurundesu. The latest entry in the Sumikko Gurashi did pretty well, with 20 616 units sold according to Media Create. That’s twice as good as the very first entry, which sold about 10 000 units during its launch week according to Famitsu.

Here’s how the previous two entries sold according to Famitsu:

  • Sumikko Gurashi: Koko ga Ochitsukundesu (November 2014): 10.301 units at launch, 124.946 in total
  • Sumikko Gurashi: Omise Hajimerundesu (November 2015): 12.880 units at launch, 92.919 in total

If sales remains steady, Sumikko Gurashi: Mura o Tsukurundesu should have no trouble selling at least 100 000 units, and maybe even reach the LTD sales of the first entry. It will depend on how frontloaded sales are: after all, the second one had a better launch week, but ended up selling about 30 000 units less.

During its second week, Yo-Kai Watch 3: Sushi / Tempura sold about 168.782 units, which is a drop of 73% compared to the launch week. That’s a pretty big but expected drop, which follows a rather disappointing launch. Early next month, it will top 1 000 000 units sold, and it should reach launch week sales of Yo-kai Watch 2: Hanso / Honke before the end of August.

Fortunately for Level-5, word of mouth is pretty positive, and the Summer holidays have just started, so sales shouldn’t drop too much in the next few weeks (at least until September).

As for Pokémon Omega Ruby / Alpha Sapphire, it looks like it’s greatly benefitting from the launch of Pokémon GO. Its sales jumped by 74% last week, with 7 143 units sold according to Media Create (which is the most the game has sold in a long while). It will be interesting to see how long the impact on Pokémon GO will remain visible. In any case, it’s a pretty good sign for Pokémon Sun and Moon!

Next, here’s how the other games on Nintendo platforms performed during Week 29, according to Media Create:

  • 05./05. [WIU] Minecraft: Wii U Edition – 8.383 units this week (+3%) / 59.339 units since launch. Now that the Summer holidays have started, it’s not surprising that sales are increasing;
  • 06./06. [WIU] Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games – 7.502 units this week (-1%) / 53.398 units since launch. Same as with Minecraft: Wii U Edition, it’s not surprising that sales are steady now that the Summer holidays are in full swing. We can expect sales to increase as we get closer to the actual Olympics. Also, it’s interesting to see this version just keep selling, despite the Nintendo 3DS version also selling steadily;
  • 07./04. [WIU] Splatoon – 7.305 units this week (-11%) / 1.430.562 units since launch. Sales are still quite steady, with the drop most likely due to the increase in sales when the new Splatoon Premium Pack for the Wii U launched;
  • 10./10. [3DS] Kirby: Planet Robobot  – 6.087 units this week (+11%) / 356.474 units since launch. Sales were boosted by several things: the start of the Summer holidays, the new TV Commercial, and the launch of the demo version;
  • 11./03. [3DS] Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns – 6.082 units this week (-38%) / 162.565 units since launch;
  • 13./14. [3DS] Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games – 4.635 units this week (+11%) / 196.161 units since launch. It will reach 200 000 units this week, and should easily reach 250 000 units sold by the end of the year;
  • 15./16. [3DS] Taiko Drum Master: Don Don! Mystery Adventure – 3.252 units this week (-18%) / 64.433 units since launch. Sales remain quite below those of the two previous entries on Nintendo 3DS;
  • 19./08. [3DS] Culdcept Revolt – 2.812 units this week (-57%) / 38.651 units since launch. Unfortunately, this game will be out of the Top 20 less than a month after release.
  • [Famitsu] 21./24. [3DS] Animal Crossing: New Leaf (Happy Price Selection)- 2.341 units this week / 72.202 units since launch. Another game benefitting from the Summer holidays.

This week, sales for the Nintendo 3DS remained steady with 26 732 units sold according to Media Create. Naturally, this is due to the beginning of the Summer holidays, which is usually pretty good period for Nintendo platforms and games. Sales are slightly below their 2015 levels, which isn’t really surprising or really worrying. They should remain strong until September.

As for the Wii U, sales are slightly down this week, but still above the 5 000 units/weeks threshold with 5 864 units sold according to Media Create. Now that the Summer holidays have started, sales should remain steady at least until September. Of course, how much the Wii U end up selling depends on how many units Nintendo ships to retailers.
