Japan: more sales data for Week 24 2019, Doraemon: Story of Seasons, Fiscal Year 2018-19 (Media Create, Dengeki)

Here’s the latest sales data report from Media Create and Dengeki!

Media Create – Day 1 Sell-through (Week 25)

This week, we have the Day 1 sell-through for a couple of Nintendo Switch titles (games and platforms are listed from best-selling to worst-selling):

  • [NSW] Yo-kai Watch 4 (Level 5) (¥5.980) – 30%. Relatively low sell-through, which doesn’t bode well for the game; it needs strong sales during the weekend. Direct comparison with past mainline entries isn’t quite possible, as it’s the first one since Yo-kai Watch 1 not to be released on a Saturday;
  • [NSW] Summer Pockets (Prototype) (¥7.200) – 40%. Relatively good sell-through, but shipment should be somewhat low and sales pretty frontloaded.

Dengeki (Week 24)

Dengeki report that Doraemon Story of Seasons was the best-selling game this week, with about 45 000 units sold at launch. The sell-through ratio is pretty good: 70%.

Just like we did earlier this week, they point out that it sold roughly the same as Return to Popolocrois: A Story of Seasons Fairytale (on Nintendo 3DS), which sold about 50 000 units at launch back in 2015 (about 80 000 units LTD). However, they expect sales to increase in the long term, following the usual sales trajectory of Story of Seasons (and Doraemon) games.

Nothing much to say about the rest of the Top 50 Software, with the top spots all taken by the usual Nintendo Switch titles.

Thanks to new releases, sales did slightly improve this week, but they remain at pretty low levels.

As of the end of May, sales for the current Fiscal Years were not looking pretty good as reported last week:

  • Hardware: 15.9 billion Yen (-7.4%)
  • Software: 14.9 billion Yen (-30.2%)
  • Total: 30.8 billion Yen (-20%)

The Nintendo Switch is pretty much the only console that saw its sales increase:

  • Hardware: 10.6 billion Yen (+7%)
  • Software: 8.3 billion Yen (+1.3%)
  • Total: 18.9 billion Yen (+4.4%)

However, all the other platforms saw their sales plummet:

  • PlayStation 4: 10.2 billion Yen (-30.2%), with 4 billion Yen for Hardware (-15.4%) and 5.6 billion Yen for Software (-39%)
  • Nintendo 3DS: 1.1 billion Yen (-60.5%)
  • PlayStation Vita: 400 million Yen (-85.9%)

Once again, the PlayStation 4 and especially the Nintendo Switch are completely dominating the market, leaving only scraps for the remaining platforms.
