Media Create – Day 1 Sell-through (Week 52)

Coming soon!

Dengeki (Week 51)

Dengeki report that Pokémon Sword and Shield sold 268 000 additional units this week, with the breakdown as follows:

  • Pokémon Sword: 135 874 units (161 000 units with the Dual Pack) / 1 186 757 units LTD (1 574 000 units LTD with the Dual Pack)
  • Pokémon Shield: 82 300 units (107 000 units with the Dual Pack) / 795 123 units LTD (1 182 000 units LTD with the Dual Pack)
  • Dual Pack: 24 944 units / 387 072 units LTD
  • Total: 2 756 000 units (including Dual Pack)

Dengeki expect sales to top 3 million units at retail in early 2020 (Week 1).

The main release of the week is Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate, which sold about 32 000 units at launch. The Nintendo Switch version sold 11 000 units, and the sellthrough ratio for both versions is about 50%. As for Terraria, it sold about 8 000 units at launch, which is a fairly decent performance. Unfortunately, Terraria is clearly no Minecraft…

Two Nintendo Switch games are selling quite well this holiday season: Luigi’s Mansion 3 with 75 000 units sold this week (458 000 units LTD), and Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 with 55 000 units this week (156 000 units LTD).

Unfortunately, there’s not much movement at the top of charts, still dominated by the usual evergreen titles on Nintendo Switch. Here’s how the other entries fared this week:

  • Uta no ☆Prince-sama♪Repeat LOVE for Nintendo Switch (Broccoli): 5 800 units sold. A good performance for a late port of an Otome game;
  • Obakeidoro! (Free Style): 3 189 units sold. A pretty decent performance for the late retail release of a game available for much cheaper on the Nintendo eShop;
  • Bustafellows (Nippon Cultural Broadcasting Extend): 2 919 units sold. A pretty poor debut, as unlike the other Otome game released this week, this one is a brand new game.

Week 51 is the biggest week of the year, and therefore it’s no wonder that sales increased quite noticeably:

  • Hardware: 405 000 units (+57.1%)
  • Software: 1 107 000 units (+26.3%)

This time around, the increased isn’t exclusively due to the Nintendo Switch. Indeed, the aggressive promotions for the PlayStation 4 boosted sales (x11), with Week 51 2019 ending as the best week this year for the console. It’s also the first time since Week 1 2019 that the console sold over 100 000 units.

The increase is much more limited for the Nintendo Switch (+15.1%, with 276 000 units sold), but of course, that’s because the console was already selling extremely well.
