Japan: more sales data for Week 4 2019, January 2019, Fiscal Year (Media Create, Dengeki)

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

Media Create (Week 4)

Today, Media Create shared their weekly report on video games sales in Japan. It reveals that Software sales topped 1 208 000 units, which is 189.22% of Week 3 sales. That massive increase is due to the release of two popular games (Kingdom Hearts III and Resident Evil 2)! Thanks to those two titles, both Software and Hardware sales increased significantly.

Media Create – Day 1 Sell-through (Week 5)

This week, we have the Day- 1 sell-through for a few Nintendo Switch games:

  • [PS4] [NSW] [PSV] Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers of the New World (Koei Tecmo) – 40%. Expected sell-through and platform breakdown;
  • [NSW] Dragon Marked For Death (Inti Creates) – 50%. Surprisingly good Day 1 sales, though it’s not clear how big the shipment is;
  • [NSW] Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star Link (Marvelous) – 20%. Low debut, but that’s to be expected for a late port…

Dengeki (Week 4)

Dengeki report that… nothing much happened in the top of the charts this week, still dominated by Nintendo Switch games (with the exception of the top 2 spots).

We also get data about January this week (and more precisely the period going from December 31st to January 27th, so 4 weeks in total). Let’s start with some raw data:

  • Hardware: 750 000 units (-6.3% Year on Year) / 23.1 billion Yen (-1.5%)
  • Software: 3 450 000 units (-9.4% Year on Year) / 23.3 billion Yen (-13.4%)
  • Total: 46.4 billion Yen (-7.8%)

As of January, the market is down by 12.2% to 304.4 billion Yen for the current Fiscal Year (April to January). Dengeki hope that the market will recover during the remaining two months (February and March).

Here’s the Top 5 Software for January 2019:
