Japan: more sales data for Week 10, 2017 (Media Create, Dengeki)

Media Create (Week 10)

Today, Media Create published its weekly report on video game sales in Japan during Week 10, 2017. It reveals that total Software sales topped 538 000 units, which is 64.47% of Week 9 sales. As for Hardware, sales topped 131 000 units, which is 32.48% of Week 9 sales. Naturally, those two massive drops are due to the launch of the Nintendo Switch last week.

This week, the Nintendo Switch sold about 61 000 units (391 000 units since launch).

  • [3DS] Future Card Buddy Fight Mezase! Buddy Champion! (FuRyu) – 30%

Dengeki (Week 10)

Dengeki reports similar sales for the Nintendo Switch: 61 000 units this week. However, their LTD is a tad higher than Media Create’s (398 000 units), due to their reporting higher sales for Week 1. They note that the console could have sold more than it did if Nintendo had shipped enough units to meet demand.

They mention the Wii and the Wii U, that sold:

  • Wii: 800 000 units during the first month, 1.67 million units during the first 3 months, and 12.76 million units LTD;
  • Wii U: 620 000 units during the first month, 790 000 units during the first 3 month (sales really did drop off a cliff once the holiday period was over), and 3.28 million units in total (they never really recovered).

How many units the Nintendo Switch will end up selling during the first months, and the the first quarter, remains to be seen, but the spring break (that starts next week) is going to be crucial.

Software-wise, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and 1-2-Switch were the two most popular titles, with titles such as Super Bomberman R also gaining traction. However, Zelda’s domination on sales is pretty clear: it accounts for 52.8% of Nintendo Switch Software sales on its own this week, with a 62.3% attach rate.
