[Japan] Media Create sales for Week 5, 2017 (Jan. 30 – Feb. 06) [Top 50]

Update: added Media Create Top 50!

Media Create – Software

This week, there’s two entries in the Top 20 from Media Create, and one of them is a Nintendo 3DS.

It’s BoxBoy! Hakobume Box, a special bundle including all three BoxBoy games at retail, which had a rather mediocre debut with 7 582 units sold. It looks like not that many people were interested in that bundle at retail, most likely because they already owned the digital versions of each game (and/or were not interested in the amiibo). According to Famitsu, the sell-through ratio is between 20-40%, which is pretty low.

As the first week of February, Week 3 was rather calm with not much happening in the Top 20. Pokémon Sun and Moon is holding rather well, with 19 831 units sold this week (-3%), and 3 132 451 units since launch (retail only, not counting the double-pack). Super Mario Maker for Nintendo 3DS had a similar drop (-5%), with 11 585 units sold this week (952 704 units since launch).

The drop is a bit worse for Poochy & Yoshi’s Woolly World (-27%), but it’s not too surprising for a game released a couple of weeks ago. It still sold 13 058 units during its third week on the market, and 70 482 units since launch. It should have no trouble reaching 100 000 units before the end of the current quarter (March 31st), but right now, this handhelds version has already caught up with the Wii U version (according to last known data from Media Create).

As for Yo-kai Watch 3: Sukiyaki, it’s also holding rather well, despite the holiday period being over for a few weeks now. With 11 509 units, it’s still hovering above the 10 000 units/week threshold, though probably not for much longer. It’s now sold over 650 000 units since launch (653 756 to be precise).

In the rest of the Top 20, we have the following Wii U and Nintendo 3DS titles:

  • 13./16. [3DS] Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Welcome amiibo (Nintendo) (¥2.700) – 4.793 / 122.197 (+4%). One of the few titles that actually saw an increase in sales this week;
  • 14./13. [3DS] Momotaro Dentetsu 2017: Tachiagare Nippon!! (Nintendo) – 4.751 / 280.099 (-15%). Another game that’s holding quite well despite the lack of public holidays, though obviously, the overall sluggishness of the market is helping;
  • 17./19. [3DS] Miitopia (Nintendo) – 3.919 / 165.079 (-7%). Rather slow but stables;
  • 20./23. [WIU] Minecraft: Wii U Edition (Microsoft Game Studios) – 3.133 / 286.082. It makes its comeback in the Top 20 this week, but it will most likely not stay there much longer…

Media Create – Hardware

Hardware-wise, the Nintendo 3DS is the only relevant platform that went up this week, with 26 101 units sold. No special release was there to boost sales, so that increase is quite intriguing. Compared to the same week last year, sales are slightly down, but the drop is not as bad as during previous weeks. This is a somehow positive sign, though it’s clear sales will not get much better until Monster Hunter XX is released, on March 18th.

So far this year, the Nintendo 3DS has sold 200 289 units, which is slightly below sales as of Week 5 in 2016 (201 499 units). This is good news for Nintendo Nintendo, who is not intending to replace the Nintendo 3DS any time soon, though obviously the increase Year on Year for the first couple of weeks helped (sales have been down Year on Year for the past few weeks).

As for the Wii U, its sales went slightly up this week, with 778 units sold. However, the increase is not really significant.
