Dengeki (Week 6)

Dengeki report that Ring Fit Adventure sold 22 000 additional units, bringing the total to 638 000 units sold since launch. Pokémon Sword and Shield and Minecraft also enjoyed strong sales, with 23 000 units and 10 000 units sold this week respectively (3 404 000 units and 1 290 000 units LTD respectively). The usual evergreen titles on Nintendo Switch dominated sales once again.

This week, Dengeki share some details about the current Fiscal Year, and more precisely the period going from April 1st to February 2nd 2020. Unfortunately, sales are down compared to the same period last year:

  • Hardware: 5.23 million units (-0.1%) / 144.6 billion Yen (-7.9%)
  • Software: 20 730 000 units (12.3%) / 136.8 billion Yen (-11.3%)
  • Total: 281.5 billion Yen (-9.5%)

Again, the Nintendo Switch Lite had an impact on Hardware revenue, due to its lower price.

As usual, the Nintendo Switch fared really well; it’s the other platforms (and more specifically the PlayStation 4) which are bringing the market down:

  • Nintendo Switch (Hardware): 4.21 million units (+21.7%)
  • Nintendo Switch (Software): 14 410 000 units (+12.6%)
  • PlayStation 4 (Hardware): 900 000 units (-29.2%)
  • PlayStation 4 (Software): 5.67 million units (29.5%)
  • Other platforms (Hardware): 130 000 units (-75.3%)
  • Other platforms (Software): 650 000 units (-76.9%)

Dengeki point out that there’s 3 months when sales were actually up compared to the previous Fiscal Year: July, September, and December. Meanwhile, both December and January saw a big drop in sales.
