Japan: more sales data for Week 11 2020, Nintendo Switch (Media Create, Dengeki)

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

Media Create – Day 1 Sell-through (Week 12)

Unfortunately, no Day 1 sell-through from Media Create this week!

Dengeki (Week 11)

Dengeki report that My Hero One’s Justice 2 sold about 25 000 units, with 18 250 units on Nintendo Switch alone. As for Winning Post 9 2020, it sold about 14 000 units, with 5 365 units for the Nintendo Switch version. Unfortunately, both games sold less than their predecessors.

Meanwhile, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX went on to sell 46 000 units during its second week, bringing total sales to 185 000 units since launch. As for Minecraft, it sold 14 000 additional units this week.

Here’s how the other new games fared this week:

  • Collar×Malice for Nintendo Switch (Idea Factory): 4 170 units. A decent performance for a late port;
  • Just Dance 2020 (Ubisoft): 2 740 units. Looks like interest in Ring Fit Adventure didn’t really carry to this game;
  • Toraware no Palm Refrain (Capcom): 1 292 units. Very little interest for this port of the second Toraware no Palm game (originally released on smart devices).

Dengeki also point out that Nintendo Switch sales have been suffering from shortages, due to the Coronavirus outbreak. This week, sales did increase Year on Year (+13.2%), with 59 000 units sold, but since February, sales have been slowing down:

  • Week 6: 105 000 units sold (83 000 units for the OG model, and 22 000 units for the Lite model)
  • Week 7: 80 000 units (58 000 units for the Lite model, and 22 000 units for the OG model)
  • Week 8: 44 000 units (32 000 units for the Lite model, and 12 000 units for the OG model)
  • Week 9: 55 000 units (41 000 units for the Lite model, 14 000 units for the OG model)
  • Week 10: 53 000 units (49 000 units for the Lite model, 4 000 units for the OG model)

Sales of the Nintendo Switch Lite increased due this model being readily available in stores, while sales of the OG model dropped sharply, even going as far as dropping to 4 000 units during Week 10.

It’s certainly a shame that those shortages will limit the impact of Animal Crossing: New Horizons on Nintendo Switch sales, because if there’s one game that can drive sales, it’s this one. That being said, Nintendo will have plenty of stock available for launch week, so we can still expect a significant increase in sales during Week 12. The real issue will be Week 13 and beyond…

Speaking of Animal Crossing, Animal Crossing: New Leaf (released back in 2012) sold 560 000 units at launch (over 4 million LTD, not including re-releases). It had a significant impact on Nintendo 3DS sales, which jumped from 87 000 units to 185 000 units.
