[Japan] Media Create sales for Week 44, 2016 (Oct. 31 – Nov. 6) [Top 50]

Update: added full Top 50 from Media Create!

Media Create – Software

This week, for the first time in a long while, there isn’t a single Wii U or Nintendo 3DS in the Media Create Top 20. The main reason for that is quite simple: a lack of releases on Nintendo platforms, as 9 of the games from the Top 10 came out this week or last week.

The best-selling game on a Nintendo platform is Monster Hunter Stories, ranked #11, with 11 698 units sold this week (and 260 425 units since launch). It doesn’t look like it benefited much from the public holiday on Thursday, since sales dropped by 24% compared to Week 43. It’s going to top 300 000 units sold by the end of the month or in early December.

Mario Party: Star Rush also didn’t benefit much from the public holiday, with sales dropping by 25%. At least, total sales have finally topped 50 000 units, which took way longer than it should have. As mentioned previously, holiday sales will be key for this title, but it doesn’t bode too well for now.

Talking of public holidays, here are the games that benefited the most from it:

  • 13./17. [WIU] Minecraft: Wii U Edition (Microsoft Game Studios) – 5.724 / 167.205 (+18%). The Wii U version just keeps on selling, even though the PSV version isn’t far behind. We can definitely expecting 200 000 units to be topped before the end of the year;
  • 15./15. [3DS] Yo-Kai Watch 3: Sushi / Tempura (Level 5) – 4.635 / 1.301.522 (-8%). Sales didn’t increase this time around, but at least, the drop is rather limited this time around (-8%). It’s clear that the announcement of Yo-kai Watch 3: Sukiyaki and the Sushi + Tempura bundle hasn’t helped sales so far;
  • 19./22. [3DS] Kirby: Planet Robobot <ACT> (Nintendo) – 3.618 / 463.74. The pink ball finally makes its comeback in the Media Create Top 20 this week, and it will be interesting to see if it manages to stay in there until the holiday period begins.

Finally, we have Paper Mario: Color Splash at #18, with 3 926 units sold. That’s a rather limited drop compared to Week 43: -13% to be precise. 37 093 units have been sold so far, and it should be able to crawl to 50 000 units before the end of the year.

Media Create – Hardware

Hardware-wise, sales increased very slightly for the Wii U, which is back above the 2 000 units/week threshold. Unfortunately, that’s pretty much all there is to say about it, as 2 071 units sold is definitely nothing to be written home about.

As for the Nintendo 3DS, it didn’t manage to get back its title of best-selling console in Japan, but the difference with the PlayStation 4 is now less than 1 000 units. Media Create reports that Nintendo’s handheld sold 31 182 units this week.

Sales increased noticeably this week, which is obviously due to the public holiday on Thursday. It’s possible anticipation for Pokémon Sun and Moon also helped, but that’s something we will not be able to say for sure until we have data for Week 45. If there’s another significant increase, then we will know this week’s boost was from both the public holiday and Pokémon.

With 31 182 units sold this week, the Nintendo 3DS is still tracking ahead of last year’s sales Week on Week, but this time, the difference is smaller (less than 1 000 units). Once again, the Nintendo 2DS is the main contributor for this increase in sales, though for some reason, it didn’t see much movement this week (only the New Nintendo 3DS XL saw a significant increase).

Speaking of the Nintendo 2DS, its sales will top 100 000 units before the end of the month.

So far, the Nintendo 3DS has sold 21 381 035 units according to Media Create. To reach 22 million units before the end of the year, it needs to sell 618 965 units during the next 8 weeks. In other words, it needs 77 370 units / week, on average.
