Here’s the latest Japanese sales data reports from Media Create, and Dengeki!

Media Create – Day 1 Sell-through (Week 11)

This week, we have the Day-1 sell-through for a couple of multiplatform titles:

  • [PS4] [NSW] Winning Post 9 2020 <SLG> (Koei Tecmo) (¥7.800) – 40-50%. It seems to be selling as expected for an expanded re-release;
  • [NSW] [PS4] My Hero: One’s Justice 2 <FTG> (Bandai Namco Games) (¥7.600) – 30-40%. Sales to be a bit on the low side, but they should pick up during the weekend.

Dengeki (Week 10)

Dengeki report that Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX sold about 138 000 units at launch, with a solid sell-through ratio: 70%. They also point out that the game opened with similar numbers as the past two entries (despite being a remake):

  • Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky (Nintendo DS): 141 000 units at launch, and 421 000 units LTD
  • Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity (Nintendo 3DS): 151 000 units at launch, and 330 000 units LTD

The original versions of Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX sold well over 1 million units, and it will be interesting to see just how far this remake will go.

There was just one other entry this week: Doraemon Nobita no Shin Kyouryuu, which sold 5 700 units. As for Minecraft on Nintendo Switch, its sales increased to 14 000 units this week, bringing total sales to 137 000 units.

This week, we also get data for the current Fiscal Year (April 1st 2019 to March 1st 2020). Unfortunately, sales are down:

  • Hardware: 5.55 million units (-0.8%) / 152.6 billion Yen (-9%), a bigger decrease than expected due to the lower price of the Nintendo Switch Lite
  • Software: 20.23 million units (-12.6%) / 145.3 billion Yen (-11.7%)
  • Total: 298 billion Yen (-10.4%, down from 332.4 billion Yen)

During the past Fiscal Year (April 2018 to March 2019), sales topped 355.9 billion Yen. For the current Fiscal Year to end on a rise, sales need to reach at least 58 billion Yen in March. Sales were at 23.5 billion Yen during the same month during the past Fiscal Year, so it’s going to be tough for sales to be up by the end of the Fiscal Year.

Of course, there’s a pretty important game releasing on March 20th… a certain Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which is bound to provide a healthy boost to both Software and Hardware sales. Unfortunately, shortages impacting the Nintendo Switch are going to limit the increase in Hardware sales…
