Japan: more sales data for Week 32, The Snack World: Trejarers (Media Create, Dengeki)

Week 32 (Media Create)

Today, Media Create published their weekly report on video game sales in Japan during Week 32, 2017. It reveals that total Software sales topped 657 000 units, which is more than last year during the same week (443 000 units). Splatoon 2 contributed to this strong performance, with 88 000 units sold, along with the two versions of Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age (208 000 units combined).

And thanks to Obon, the sales of evergreen titles such as Mario Kart 8 Deluxe increased: it sold 17 000 units, so 125.41% of Week 31 sales. A nice boost!

As for Hardware sales, they topped 181 000 units, which is 273.01% of sales during the same week last year. Media Create point out that this increase is mostly due to the Nintendo Switch and the New Nintendo 2DS XL, though the PlayStation 4 is also contributing.

Media Create also have a few words about The Snack World: Trejarers, the latest cross-media project from Level-5. It had a decent debut, with 98 000 units sold during the first four days. That’s more than Yo-kai Watch did in 2013, with 54 000 units during the first week.

But like we did the other day, they also point out that the anime series has already started airing (which wasn’t the case for Yo-kai Watch). Still, they consider that The Snack World: Trejarers is off to a smooth start.

Week 32, 2017 (Dengeki)

Dengeki start by pointing out that the Nintendo 3DS version of Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age has been topping sales for three weeks in a row, with 129 000 units sold (213 000 units combined with the PlayStation 4 version). Since launch, the game has sold 2 794 000 units combined, with 1 567 000 units on Nintendo 3DS, and 1 227 000 units on PlayStation 4).

But how does it compare to the previous mainline Dragon Quest games after the same amount of weeks? Take a look for yourself:

  • Dragon Quest IX – 3.19 million units
  • Dragon Quest VIII – 2.9 million units
  • Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age – 2 794 000 units

So far, Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age is following a similiar sales pattern as Dragon Quest VIII, which ended up selling over 3 380 000 units total.

As for The Snack World: Trejarers, the latest cross-media project from Level-5, it’s off to a decent start with 85 000 units sold (that’s quite the difference with Media Create’s data). According to Dengeki, the sell-through ratio is 55%, which would seem a tad low if not for Obon: Level-5 simply shipped a lots of copies for that important “week”.

Here’s how the other cross-media project from Level-5 fared at launch:

  • Inazuma Eleven: 38 000 units (434 000 units LTD)
  • The Little Battlers: 167 000 units (365 000 units)
  • Yo-kai Watch: 54 000 units (1.28 million units)

Just like Media Create, they point out that the anime series has already begun airing (which wasn’t the case for Inazuma Eleven or Yo-kai Watch when they debuted), which is why they’re going to take a close look at sales in the future, to see if the game has potential or not.
