Media Create – Day 1 Sell-through (Week 51)

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

  • [PS4] [NSW] Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate <ACT> (Koei Tecmo) (¥7.800) – 50%. A decent start for an expanded re-release;
  • [NSW] [PS4] Megaman & Megaman X 5-in-1 Box Set <ACT> (Capcom) (¥9.990) – 25%. A slow start, not surprising for a collection of retro collections;
  • [NSW] Uta no Prince-Sama: Repeat Love for Nintendo Switch <ADV> (Broccoli) (¥5.800) – 40%. Okayish debut for yet another late port of an Otome game.
