Japan: more sales data for Week 33 2019, August 2019, Fiscal Year (Media Create, Dengeki)

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

Media Create – Day 1 Sell-through (Week 34)

Unfortunately, no sell-through data this week!

Dengeki (Week 33)

Dengeki report that previously released games monopolise the top of the charts this week, which is no surprise: there was no new release during Week 33, due to Obon. Super Mario Maker 2 is once again the best-selling game in Japan, with about 47 000 units sold. This brings total sales to about 497 000, and it’s already guaranteed to reach 500 000 units during Week 34.

There is not much movement in the top of the charts, with Tsuri Spirits Nintendo Switch Version at #2 with 30 000 units sold (LTD: 128 000 units), Super Smash Bros. Ultimate selling 18 000 additional units (bringing total sales to 3 283 000 units), and Fire Emblem: Three Houses selling 15 000 units this week (total sales since launch: 233 000 units).

This week, Obon provided a healthy boost to the market, though sales remain at a low level:

  • Hardware: 78 000 units (+29%)
  • Software: 372 000 units (+26.3%)

The Nintendo Switch is still dominating sales: in August, the console grabbed 9 of the 10 spots of the Top 10 during 3 weeks. And so far in August, its market share is quite big:

  • Total: about 70%
  • Software: 72.5%
  • Hardware: 70.7%
