Dengeki (Week 26)

Dengeki report that Mario Tennis Aces once again topped the sales charts this week, in the last weekly report for June. It sold about 56 000 units, bringing the total since launch to over 179 000 units. The Nintendo Switch also grabbed the following two spots: Minecraft at #2 with 29 000 units (92 000 units since launch), and Splatoon 2 at #3 with 16 000 units this week (2 457 000 units since launch).

Among the new releases, we have one lone Nintendo Switch title. It’s Ys VII: Lacrimosa of Dana, that sold roughly 7 000 units at launch. Dengeki notes that thanks to the FIFA World Cup, sales of two football games have been increasing in the past few weeks: FIFA 18 and Winning Eleven 2018.

Also, Dengeki share some data about June (May 28th to June 1st):

  • Hardware: 380 000 units (+0.9% Year on Year) / 11.2 billion Yen (+6.7%)
  • Software: 1 620 000 units (+16.3%) / 9.9 billion Yen (+23.9%)
  • Total: 21.1 billion Yen (+14.2%)

Hardware sales by units were basically flat (though the higher price points of the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 helped with revenue), and it’s Software sales that pulled the whole market up. It’s the second month in row that the market is up in Japan.

Dengeki also report that the Nintendo Switch and the the PlayStation 4 now account for more than 80% of the market. Here’s data for both:

  • Nintendo Switch (Hardware): 220 000 units sold (+52.4%), 59.1% market share;
  • Nintendo Switch (Software): 710 000 units sold (+103.2%), 43.8% market share;
  • PlayStation 4 (Hardware): 110 000 units (-11.7%), 27.9% market share;
  • PlayStation 4 (Software): 630 000 units (-+42.9%), 38.9% market share.

Finally, here’s the Top 6 Software:

  1. [NSW] Mario Tennis Aces (Nintendo): 179 000 units sold
  2. [PS4] Fate/EXTELLA LINK (Marvelous): 102 000 units sold
