Japan: more sales data for Week 2 2020, Super Robot Taisen X, Fiscal Year (Media Create, Dengeki)

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

Media Create – Day 1 Sell-through (Week 3)

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

Dengeki (Week 2)

Dengeki report that Pokémon Sword and Shield sold 70 000 additional units this week, with the breakdown as follows:

  • Pokémon Sword: 34 131 units (39 000 units with the Dual Pack) / 1 444 552 units LTD (1 870 000 units LTD with the Dual Pack)
  • Pokémon Shield: 26 381 units (31 000 units with the Dual Pack) / 972 965 units LTD (1 390 000 units LTD with the Dual Pack)
  • Dual Pack: 4 831 units / 421 197 units LTD
  • Total: 3 260 000 units (including Dual Pack)

The only new release of the week is Super Robot Taisen X, which sold only 3 817 units. The sell-through ratio is pretty average: about 40%. Dengeki point out that the initial release on PlayStation 4 and PS Vita sold a lot more (85 000 and 52 000 units at launch respectively), which is pretty much standard: late ports generally only sell a fraction of what the original did.

As expected, the end of the holiday season had a pretty negative impact on sales:

  • Hardware: 128 000 units sold (-62.7%)
  • Software: 341 000 units sold (-64.3%)

Here’s how the market is faring this Fiscal Year (April 1st to December 29th):

  • Hardware: 4.48 million units sold (+2%) / 124.2 billion Yen (-5.2%)
  • Software: 18.21 million units sold (-7.6%) / 120.6 billion Yen (-5.4%)
  • Total: 244.8 billion Yen (-5.3%)

Just like during the Holiday Season, Hardware sales are down by revenue (despite sales by units increasing slightly) due to the cheaper Nintendo Switch Lite taking a significant chunk of sales.

For FY 2019-20 to end up on a positive note, with sales up Year on Year, total sales during Q4 (January to March) need to top 100 billion Yen.
