Japan: more sales data for Week 8 2020, Persona 5 Scramble, multiplats, more (Media Create, Dengeki)

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

Media Create – Day 1 Sell-through (Week 9)

No Day 1 sell-through data from Media Create this week!

Dengeki (Week 8)

Dengeki report that Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers sold about 168 000 units at launch, with about 49 000 units on Nintendo Switch. It’s not as much as Persona 5 Royal (201 000 units at launch), but the sell-through ratio is pretty good: 75% (which implies there was additional shipments for the Nintendo Switch version during the weekend).

As for Katana Kami: A Way of the Samurai, it sold about 21 000 units at launch, with about 8 000 units on Nintendo Switch. Once again, the sell-through ratio is 75%, which is pretty good. Meanwhile, Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Mega 39’s sold 11 000 additional units, bringing total saoes to 65 000 units.

Here’s how the other new releases fared:

  • Devil May Cry Triple Pack – 1 721 units. A poor result, which shows players are (once again) not really interested in late retail releases of late ports of games already available on the Nintendo eShop, and with only one game on the cart;
  • UNDER NIGHT IN-BIRTH Exe:Late[cl-r] – 2 332 units sold, with only 794 units on Nintendo Switch. A poor performance;
  • Chou no Dokuhana no Kusari ~Taishou Enren Ibun~ – 1 429 units. Another Otome game that didn’t do too hot on Nintendo Switch.

This week, Dengeki shared some interesting data regarding the sales ratio of multiplatform releases (78 of them as of this week):

  • Week 1 – Nintendo Switch: 42.8% / PlayStation 4: 57.2%
  • LTD – Nintendo Switch: 55.6% / PlayStation 4: 44.4%

What this shows is that looking only at Week 1 data, multiplatform titles sell more on PlayStation 4 at launch, but the Nintendo Switch versions sell better in the long run.
